Slow Cook­er Ital­ian Wed­ding Soup takes some time to pre­pare, but if done in stages is so much eas­i­er, and worth the time to prep! Make the meat­balls ahead of time and stick them in the freez­er to make this soup even eas­i­er to pre­pare!

  1. Mix all meat­ball ingre­di­ents togeth­er and form into 3/4-inch meat­balls (about 5 dozen).
  2. Add oil to a large skil­let and heat over medi­um-high.
  3. Add meat­balls (can do a few batch­es) and brown on both sides.
  4. Place cooked meat­balls on a paper tow­el-lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
  5. Place onion, car­rots and cel­ery in a 6-Quart slow cook­er.
  6. Add chick­en breasts on top of veg­eta­bles.
  7. Add meat­balls and remain­ing ingre­di­ents expect pas­ta and spinach.
  8. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 7 hours
  9. Remove bay leaf and chick­en breasts, then recov­er slow cook­er
  10. Shred chick­en and return to slow cook­er.
  11. Stir in pas­ta and spinach. Cov­er and cook on LOW for 15–30 min­utes or until pas­ta is cooked to your lik­ing.
  12. Top each serv­ing with grat­ed parme­san cheese.
