½ lb. ground Turkey (or Chicken)
½ tsp. Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Egg White (I use the whole egg)
1 clove Garlic, minced
2 Tb. Parsley, chopped
1 Tb. Parmesan cheese
5 C Chicken broth
½ C Orzo pasta
1 bu. Escarole, washed and shredded
2 Tb. Lemon juice
In a bowl, mix together turkey, egg white, garlic, parsley, cheese, salt and pepper. In a large pot, bring broth to a boil. Add meatballs and orzo, reduce heat to med. low, cover and simmer 15 min., or until meatballs are cooked through. Add escarole and lemon juice. Cover and simmer 5 min, or until escarole is tender. Serve sprinkled with cheese.
**Note-This is one of my favorite soups. Do not omit the lemon juice-it makes this dish!
**Note-You may substitute the orzo for any type of small pasta-I have used extra alphabet pasta I couldn't find another use for. You could even use broken up pieces of pasta you've saved from the bottom of your other pasta boxes.
