There is a traditional Italian wedding soup that uses some of the same ingredients as the minestrone. But it is much more focused on the meat than the vegetables.
- Combine the ingredients listed (except the meat) and add a dash of salt and of freshly ground pepper.
- Shape the meat loaf mix into 1/2 inch balls and sprinkle on a little oregano.
- Simmer everything in a large pot for about 20 minutes.
It doesn't get any easier than this!
