Makes 2 servings!


• 8 oz ground pork

• Meatball Spice: ¾ t ground fennel, ¼ t dried oregano, ¼ t coriander, 1/8 t red pepper flakes

• Soup Starter: 1/2 c onion, 1/2 c diced carrot, 2 tsp garlic

• 2 cups chicken broth (plus 2 cups water)

• 1/2 c ditalini pasta

• 4 oz kale

• Oregano & Parsley: 3 Tbsp oregano, ¼ c parsley

• 1/4 t garlic

• 1 lemon

• 1/3 c parmesan


1. PREP VEGGIES & MAKE PARMESAN CRISPS • Preheat oven to 400° • Remove any large stems and chop kale • On a sheet pan, use a 1 Tbsp measurement to make 4 piles of parmesan (8 piles for meals serving 4), then pat each pile evenly into about a 3” circle, reserving remaining parmesan for gremolata • Bake 5–8 min, until light golden brown, then remove from pan and let cool.

2. MAKE MEATBALLS • In a med bowl, mix together pork, Meatball Spice, ½ tsp salt (1 tsp), ¼ tsp pepper & 1 Tbsp olive oil ( 2 Tbsp) • Shape into ½ Tbsp-sized meatballs • Heat 1 Tbsp oil (2 Tbsp) in a stockpot over med-high • Cook meatballs on all sides until cooked through, about 5–8 min total, then remove and set aside

3. START SOUP • Heat the pot used for meatballs over med-high, adding another 1–2 tsp oil if dry • Add Soup Starter then cook 3 min • Add chicken broth & 2 cups water (4 cups) and bring to a boil • Add ditalini and cook just shy of completely done, about 6 min, stirring so pasta doesn't stick together

4. MAKE GREMOLATA & FINISH SOUP • Remove stems and mince oregano & parsley • Zest & juice HALF of lemon (whole lemon) then cut remainder into wedges for garnish • In a small bowl, combine herbs, garlic, lemon juice & zest, 2 Tbsp olive oil (1/4 cup), remaining parmesan & salt to taste • To soup, add meatballs & kale, reduce heat to med[1]low and cook 2–4 min, until kale is wilted, then adjust seasoning to taste

5. GARNISH & GATHER • Serve soup topped with a spoonful of gremolata, lemon wedges & parmesan crisp
