  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt

  1. Add 15 cups water to a large soup pot over high heat. Add 1 Tbsp salt and all of your chopped potatoes to the soup pot. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes.
  2. In the mean time, slice your carrots and toss them into the soup pot.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of 1/2″ pieces of thin spaghetti to the soup pot or whatever pasta you wish.
  4. Place ground pork into a large bowl. Add 1/2 chopped onion, 1 tsp Mrs. Dash, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, 2 tsp salt, and 1 egg. Mix well.
  5. Make meatballs by rolling them in your hands. Toss them in your pot as you make them. Cook for at least 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and floating at the top.
  6. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick skillet over medium/high heat. Add 3 Tbsp canola oil, finely diced celery and 1/2 onion. Saute until soft and golden. Add it to the pot.
  7. Add 1 beaten egg to the soup pot while stirring constantly so you don’t get clumps of egg. (Optional).
