February’s Recipe of the Month

February’s Recipe of the Month is BRAND NEW and absolutely delicious: Italian Wedding Soup. This beautiful soup is packed with veggies and protein and simmered in my go-to Pacific Foods Organic Free Range Low-Sodium Chicken Broth.

This soup is easy to make and customize. I’ve noted some great ways to make it your own, but be sure to read through the recipe blog postitself to get all of the deets:!

  • Choose your grain. I love using pearl couscous in this soup, but feel free to use your favorite short pasta like orzo or ditalini.
  • Go gluten free. You can always use your favorite gluten free pasta shape, or even rice!
  • Pick your protein. I prefer using ground chicken or ground turkey because they’re nice and lean while still being protein-packed, but you can use ground beef, ground pork, or your favorite ground meat to make the meatballs!
  • Make it vegetarian. Feel free to omit the meatballs and add a can of rinsed, drained chickpeas instead. Then, be sure to use Pacific Foods Organic Low Sodium Vegetable Broth in place of their chicken broth.
  • Swap your veggies. As I mentioned, you can throw in spinach or kale in this soup, plus any other vegetables lurking in your fridge. Green beans, celery, zucchini, and even potatoes would be great!

Here’s how the Recipe of the Month works

  1. The recipe: on the first Wednesday of each month we’ll share a new or reader-favorite Ambitious Kitchen recipe to make that month. You have the entire month to make the recipe!
  2. The giveaway: When you make the recipe (anytime during the month!) you have two different ways to enter to win the Staub dutch oven, apron, and selection of Pacific Foods soups & broths. We’ll randomly select a winner at the end of the month. See below for the two ways to share! Must be 18 years or older, USA only.
