Step 1

To make the meatballs: In a bowl, combine 1 egg, Parmesan cheese, parsley, Greek oregano, garlic, and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. Mix together. Add the ground pork and sirloin, mix to incorporate the seasoning. Roll into tiny balls the size of marbles.

To make the soup: Bring the chicken broth to a simmer in a large pot over medium heat. Add the mini meatballs and tortellini. Simmer for 8 minutes. In a small bowl, beat together the egg and sea salt.

For the Stracciatella: Turn the heat to high, and bring the soup to a rolling boil. Slowly stream in 1/2 the beaten egg into the pot, while whisking soup vigorously with a fork.

Place a portion of the baby spinach in a soup bowl. Pour the hot soup over the spinach and top with freshly grated Parmesan.
