Light Escarole Soup with Turkey Meatballs
this is my all time favorite soup. the recipe is from epicurius.com. the 
first time i made it took me 45 mins and the recipe says. 
if you want it lighter, leave out the meatballs or orzo. 
 
 
escarole soup with turkey meatballs 
 
 
truly a great soup 
can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. 
 
  for soup

1 tsp  chopped fresh rosemary leaves or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  rosemary, crumbled
1 Tbsp  olive oil
1/2 lb.  escarole (about 1/2 head), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch
  strips, washed well, and spun dry (about 6 cups packed)
3-1/2 cup  low-salt chicken broth
1/4 cup  orzo (rice-shaped pasta) or other small pasta
 
  for meatballs
1/4 lb.  ground turkey

ingredients except oil and season with salt and pepper. form mixture into 
meatballs about 1 inch in diameter. in a heavy 9-inch skillet heat oil 
over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and brown meatballs 
about 3 minutes (meatballs will not be cooked through).
