Slow Cooker Italian Wedding Soup

Slow Cooker Italian Wedding Soup from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but for some reason, everyone in my house is working late, traveling and running from event to event. Long nights and busy weekends don’t make for good food choices and it’s tough to spend a Sunday meticulously preparing lunches for the week ahead. We’ve been ordering take out and pizza more often than I’d like to admit. But that’s going to stop – because now I have foolproof slow cooker recipes like this comforting Italian Wedding Soup.

Instead of making poor choices so early in the year and destroying all the progress we’ve made towards our nutrition goals, this simple soup has come to our rescue. We make this hearty soup filled with healthy ingredients in the slow cooker. It takes a few minutes to prepare the meatballs, and, within a few hours, the entire house is filled with the inviting aromas of Italian ingredients, savory broth, turkey meatballs, spinach and pasta. Bring the crock to the table and add parmesan and freshly cracked pepper. Your whole family will love it and you can easily reheat leftovers during the hectic week ahead.

    It looks so healthy and absolutely very delicious!! I am going to make a big dish of this for my immediate family as well as for my 86 years-young mother! Mom is a superb cook and I know that she made this when I was younger quite often. Nothing beats hot Italian Wedding Soup
    on a cold Fall day along with your favorite buttered homemade bread. Having a Set & Forget Programmable Slow Cooker by Hamilton Beach just makes that whole cooking process a whole lot easier, and it makes the recipe healthier for you while making the it taste more moist too!

    Hi, so, from the recipe it looks as you put raw meatballs in the slow cooker? We put the in raw and they immediately fell apart. Also, it this for some special slow cooker? Programable? Maybe this is why we had trouble with the meatballs? Looks like curdled milk- the meat in the soup. It really doesn’t look very appetizing, any advice?
