Small Batch Italian Wedding Soup

This small batch Italian wedding soup gives you all the delicious flavor of a typical Italian wedding soup but in a much smaller batch. No more eating soup for weeks!

This small batch Italian wedding soup is perfect for small families and singles. No more making enough soup to feed an Army. This simple soup is easy to make and perfect for 2.

When I met my husband I was introduced to the wonder that is Italian wedding soup. His stepmom makes it for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Before we sit down to eat our big meal we always fill up our bowls with hot soup and then sprinkle on lots of salty Parmesan cheese.

I’m a little sad I haven’t been doing this my whole life. Italian wedding soup is where it’s at. It’s packed full of little meatballs, vegetables, pasta and of course topped in cheese. If you’re thinking “I don’t have time to make meatballs and soup both” you’re wrong. Since this is a small batch soup you don’t have to worry about rolling 50950304 super tiny meatballs. Instead this recipe makes about 20 meatballs. Totally reasonable.

Plus this dish is perfect for couples. No more “I made a huge pot of soup…this means we are eating soup for a week straight.” Nope. This is the perfect recipe for just 4 bowl of soup.

Easy peasy.

This small batch Italian wedding soup is perfect for small families and singles. No more making enough soup to feed an Army. This simple soup is easy to make and perfect for 2.

I made this soup for my friends over at Anolon. It totally screams Christmas to me (now that I’m married) and I can’t imagine a Christmas not starting with a bowl of this deliciousness.

    Yay! small batch! I’m currently eating a large batch of tomato soup with tortellini that I wish I scaled down. Soup for weeks can be such a downer!

    This looks really good and I love that it is in a small batch. Every time we make soup we get tired of it because we have to eat it for the whole week.

    I need to start learning how to cook in smaller batches. It’s going to be tough so I’m happy you’re leading the way. Your soup looks super. I love those baby meatballs.
