Recipe Information

# of Servings: 6
Recipe Created By: Amy Hugon


6 cups water
1/4 cup chicken or veggie broth powder
1 16 oz pkg frozen spinach
1 lb ground turkey
12 oz rice pasta – ziti shape or similar
to taste salt and pepper
1/4 – 1/2 cup dried chopped carrots
1/4 cup dried veggie blend for soup – dried onions, spinach, carrots, etc (optional)


Heat water and broth powder to boiling. Put in carrots and any dried veggies, and frozen spinach.

Shape turkey meat into *small* meatballs (no bigger than 1″ in diameter), and dump them into the water. These will cook in the boiling water.

Once the meatballs are cooked (approximately ten minutes), you can turn the heat down and let this simmer until you’re about ready to serve it.

About 30 minutes before serving, turn heat up so soup is boiling again. Put in rice pasta, and leave it boiling for 20 minutes or so.



Everyone ate this. Mark and Chloe loved canned Italian Wedding Soup, and I wanted to try to make a safe version for Annika.

I prefer Tinkyada rice pasta.

I get my dried veggie blend for soup from Azure Standard.

The water and broth powder can be replaced with 6 cups of canned or homemade chicken or veggie stock. Dried veggies can be replaced with fresh chopped veggies. Increase the quantity from 1/4 cup dried to about 1 cup fresh.

Use homemade broth powder or canned stock if no pre-made versions are safe.
