Tips for the Best Italian Wedding Soup

This is my personal recipe for the best Italian wedding soup! You probably want to know what makes it the best, so let’s start there:

  • Searing the meatballs is a game changer in my opinion. When you can brown them first and add all that flavor, why just simmer them in broth?
  • Make the meatballs small. This is soup, not a big bowl of pasta.
  • Use fresh herbs. They really add great flavor.
  • Stick with the combination of the two meats.
  • Use fresh bread crumbs. Again we’re building better flavor. The texture of dry would throw this recipe off anyway.
  • Don’t be skimpy with the garlic. This is an Italian soup. I like to use 4 cloves here.
  • Shredded Parmesan will be a great addition to the soup; bring it on! Even though it might not be seen as a final garnish, don’t omit it!
  • Continue using small pasta; I adore the way it distinguishes this soup.

The secret to the BEST Italian wedding soup

The key to creating the most delicious Italian wedding soup is to use homemade meatballs that add a ton of flavor to the broth. And using a combination of meat is the key to making the best meatballs. To make the best meatballs, I combine ground beef and ground pork in this recipe. Additionally, ground turkey can be used in place of beef or pork.

Meatballs may sound complicated, but this soup recipe is easy because there’s no need to brown the meatballs ahead of time. Saving time by cooking them directly in the broth also adds a ton of flavor to it.

Naturally, another time-saving option is to use frozen meatballs (see below).
