1. Combine beef, 2 tbs pasta, pine nuts, bread crumbs, egg, 1 tbs parsley, 1/2 tsp basil, salt, pepper and garlic in a bowl. Form into 1 inch meatballs.
2. Bring beef broth, tomato sauce, onion and remaining 1/2 tsp basil to a boil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Carefully add meatballs to broth. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Add remaining 3 tbs pasta; cook 10 minutes or until tender. Garnish with remaining 1 tbs parsley.
Tip: Acini di pepe is a tiny rice-shaped pasta. You could also substitute orzo pasta.
I made this Dec 28 2005, and I would make this again.

Jujufroggiebaby 2 years agoWow is this ever a great soup! Made this yesterday and everyone absolutely loved it. My only suggestion is that you need to make double. I bet you still won't have leftovers if you do.
rkdurazo 3 years agoVery satisfying meal. The broth is missing something- maybe a little tang or spice(?) Will definitely make it again, but would doctor it up a bit. The meatballs are perfect.
