  • 8 oz. ground beef chuck
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 qt. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 - 9oz. package refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 4 cups loosely packed baby spinach (about 3 oz.)



Step 1

Combine the beef, parmesan, 2 Tbl. parsley, the egg, garlic, 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl; mix with your hands until just combined. Form into 1-inch meatballs; set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a plate. Add the carrots and celery to the pot; cook, stirring, until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and 3 cups water, bring to a boil. Return the meatballs to the pot along with the remaining 2 Tbl. parsley and 1/2 tsp. salt. Simmer until the meatballs are just cooked through, about 2 minutes.

Add the tortellini and cook until they float to the top, about 4 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Top with parmesan cheese.
