Ingredients
For Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
For Soup:
  • 2 large carrots or 3-4 smaller carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
  • ½ large onion diced
  • 4-5 cups chicken broth or chicken stock, add more at the end if the soup looks too thick for your preference
  • ½ cup uncooked small pasta such as “stelline” (stars) {If you prefer a wholegrain option, you can either use a similarly shaped uncooked wholegrain pasta, OR you could substitute with cooked brown rice or quinoa}
  • 6 ounces baby spinach
Instructions
  1. Place carrots and onion in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. In a large bowl, use hands to gently combine meatball ingredients. Form meat mixture into mini meatballs. I like to use a melon baller for this step, which keeps my hands relatively clean and ensures that the meatballs are all about the same size. You could also just scoop them out with a teaspoon and roll them in your palm.
  3. Place meatballs on top of vegetables in the slow cooker.
  4. Pour broth over meatballs.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  6. During final 15-20 minutes of cooking, stir in dry pasta and spinach. Cover and cook until pasta is tender and spinach is wilted. Ladle into bowls and serve!
