  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup, chopped Onions
  • 1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 1/2 cup, chopped Carrots
  • 4 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1/4 cup Spaghetti/Marinara Pasta Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 8 oz Italian Sausage, sweet
  • 4 ounce Ground Beef (80% Lean / 20% Fat)
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)


In Phase 1 and 2 leave the carrot out of this recipe; decrease the NC by about .7g per serving.
  1. Heat olive oil In a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the white onion, diced celery and carrots and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, marinara sauce and Italian seasoning. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the sausage, ground beef and egg together in a mixing bowl. Using a tablespoon, form meat mixture into balls and drop into the simmering soup. Alternatively, bake the meatballs in a 350°F oven on a jelly roll pan until brown on the outside before adding to the soup.
  4. Cook for an additional 20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through.
  5. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and serve immediately.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
