Italian Wedding Soup

There’s this super old Italian meat market at the end of our street which we love to go to. It’s family owned and all family members work there. They are great people and they make a lot of Italian dishes in their meat market for you to take home. I tend to have talks with the owner about how I make a particular dish and he tells me how he makes his, it’s great and I love supporting this family owned business. A few weeks back we saw they had their Italian Wedding soup so we decided to give it a try. It was so GOOD that I decided to make my own as well. So here is our version of Italian Wedding soup and it did not disappoint.
