    Terrific, I used ground chicken and added a tsp of honey to the broth.

    This is a great recipe. I do not care for cooked greens. We wilt them per individual servings. Again, great recipe!

    AMEN Since 1982! I am so tired of people reviewing a recipe that they've changed beyond recognition. Totally unhelpful!! Please stop doing this, people!

    I don't mean to be unkind but unless reviewers prepare the recipe exactly as written at least once, the resulting reviews (of preemptive variations) really aren't relevant or helpful to someone who is wondering if *this* recipe is delicious and satisfying.

    Although extremely healthy, the flavors didn't appear as rich as I would have preferred. Thus, I added a pinch of thyme, basil, and dried parsley to my meatballs. Also, I switched out escarole (couldn't find it at the supermarket) for some chopped spinach leaves. There still appeared a bit too much broth, so at the same as placing in the meatballs I added 1 cup of barley with a dash of basil. The result was a wonderful dish!

    This is a good recipe. I add a bit of thyme to the meatballs and I bake them first too. I also add some ditalini and/or barley to the soup.

    I actually add some flat-leaf parsley to my meatballs and bake them in the oven first. Overall this was a great soup. We loved it!
