Why is it called wedding soup?
Well, I googled it and found two answers...One, because it is always served at weddings. That could be true in southwestern Pennsylvania because I've had it at several weddings. It's a real favorite around here. Two, because it refers to the meat and the greens in the soup making a good pairing for each other. This answer seems more likely. This recipe is easy and made in the slow cooker or crock pot. Pre-made meatballs are a great help.
Crockpot Wedding Soup
12 to 16 meatballs ( I used Aldi's brand of pre-made meatballs)
6 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 cups carrot, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
2 ounces frozen, chopped spinach, defrosted
garlic, to taste
pepper, to taste
*added the last hour - 1/2 cup pastina pasta (tiny pasta)
**to serve, add grated parmesan cheese
cook on low 4-6 hours
