Ingredients:  
2 tbsp dried chopped onions or 1/4 c diced fresh onions, 1 tbsp Italian seasonings, 2 large eggs, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 c bread crumbs, 1/2 c Parmesan cheese, 16 oz ground beef or meat loaf mix

1/2 pound curly endive or spinach, coarsely chopped
2 large eggs
2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan, plus extra for garnish

Directions:
Directions:
Combine onion, seasoning, egg, garlic, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese together in mixing bowl. Mix in meat; shape into 1" balls.

To make soup: Bring broth to a boil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and endive and simmer until cooked through - about 10 minutes.

Whisk the eggs and cheese in medium bowl to blend. Stir soup in circular motion and slowly drizzle egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin strands of egg, about 1 minute. Season soup with salt and pepper to taste.

Don't add cooked pasta until you're ready to serve, or it will keep growing and 'suck up' all of your broth.
