Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 15 min

Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy

Ingredients

8 ounces ground beef chuck

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 clove garlic, grated

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 carrots, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

1 quart low-sodium chicken broth

1 9 -ounce package refrigerated cheese tortellini

4 cups loosely packed baby spinach (about 3 ounces)

Directions

Combine the beef, parmesan, 2 tablespoons parsley, the egg, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a medium bowl; mix with your hands until just combined. Form into 1-inch meatballs; set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a plate. Add the carrots and celery to the pot; cook, stirring, until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth and 3 cups water; bring to a boil. Return the meatballs to the pot along with the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Simmer until the meatballs are just cooked through, about 2 minutes.

Add the tortellini and cook until they float to the top, about 4 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Top with more parmesan.
