"Ciao!" OK so I'm told that Italians don't actually serve this dish at weddings but the name describes the marrying of the ingredients into an evergreen love affair. Who can disagree?
Start by making the meatballs. Combine 250g each of minced beef and pork with 3 tbsp breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp grated parmesan, 1 tsp garlic powder, and a dash of pepper and salt. Use your hands to roll out golf ball sized meatballs.
Sear the meatballs in a deep pan along with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Once meatballs are nicely browned, remove them from the plan temporarily. Now in the same pan (don't clean it) add another 2 tsp of olive oil and stir in cubed celery (1-2 stalks), cubed carrots (1-2 small ones), and half an onion (coarsely chopped). Stir for a minute.
Pour 900ml (1.5 pouches) of MGK broth (we recommend chicken but any flavor will work) into the same pan and allow it to come to a gentle boil. Add a handful of small pasta eg. farfalle or macaroni or even brown rice. Simmer for 10 mins, then return the seared meatballs to the pan to join the broth in holy matrimony. Add salt to taste.
Just before serving, add large leafy greens like spinach into the hot broth and let them wilt for a minute. Buon Appetito!
