1/3
cup dried bread crumbs
3
tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
3
tbsp grated Parmesan
2
tbsp chopped garlic
2
tbsp chopped oregano
1/2
tsp salt
1/2
tsp pepper
1
egg, beaten

pinch of paprika
soup
2
tbsp unsalted butter
3/4
cup chopped white onions
3/4
cup chopped carrots
2
tbsp chopped garlic
1/2
tsp salt
ground black pepper, to taste
4
cups low-sodium chicken broth
1
can (28 oz) whole tomatoes, drained and halved
1
cup uncooked orzo
2
cups shredded kale
Directions
1.
For the meatballs, put beef, pork, bread crumbs, parsley, Parmesan, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, egg, nutmeg, and paprika into a large bowl and use your hands to mix well. Use a teaspoon to measure out meat for even sized meatballs. With damp hands, shape them into 1-inch balls and transfer them to a large plate. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.
2.
For the soup, melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until translucent and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes, and 2 cups water. Cover and cook 10 minutes over medium heat or until soup comes to a boil.
3.
Add meatballs and orzo to the boiling soup and stir to make sure they are fully submerged. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes over medium heat. Stir in kale. Test a meatball and a piece of orzo to ensure that they are fully cooked. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve immediately
