Italian Wedding Soup http://www.davita.com/recipes/soups and stews/italian-wedding-soup/a/5556

You don’t have to be Italian – or having a wedding – to try our kidney-friendly Italian Wedding Soup. Our recipe comes from DaVita renal dietitians Cynthia and Jean from Pennsylvania, and it is appropriate for those following diabetic, dialysis and CKD non-dialysis diets. Tiny meatballs are made from extra-lean ground beef and then added to chicken broth, along with spinach, pasta, carrots and chicken. It doesn’t take long before you have a substantial soup that’s brimming with flavor. One taste, and you’ll know why this soup is a favorite in homes across America.
