Spaghetti and Meatball Soup | Italian Wedding Soup | Cooking for Two


Now that the kids have grown and flown, it’s just the hubby and I home for dinner. A nice bowl of homemade Italian Wedding soup , along with some homemade bread is just the answer for dinner.

Italian Wedding Soup

There are many recipes I make with spaghetti, that thin Italian pasta. Spaghetti doesn’t always have to be covered with red sauce, or as some say, gravy. I make my mother-in-law’s favorite Irish Spaghetti Casserole, made from ham and spaghetti and an easy and quick weeknight supper. It also happens to be my oldest daughter’s requested favorite birthday meal! For real!

Try this easy version of little meatball soup for lunch or dinner some night with homemade bread.
