Meatballs go hand-in-hand with spaghetti, but they also can add a wonderful flavor and texture to soup. Pair them with cheese tortellini and you’ve got an amped-up version of Italian wedding soup.

The original recipe called for beef, but I used ground turkey to cut down on calories (fewer than 500 a serving). If your kids complain when they see you stirring in what looks to be a lot of spinach, not to worry — it will cook down to slim strands.

Don’t forget to grate a little Parmesan on top — it adds just the right amount of saltiness. Serve with warm, crusty bread.
