"If you like wedding soup," says Rach, "you're gonna love this dish!" She created it after John asked her to basically make wedding soup without the soup—less broth, more pasta, mini meatballs. It's a winner, and it's prepared in one pan!
Heat a large nonstick skillet with 2 tablespoons EVOO over medium heat, add the onions and garlic and cook until softened, 4 to 5 minutes, then cool.
Soak bread with milk.
Place meat in bowl. Add moist bread, season with salt and pepper and add half the onions and garlic, egg, cheese, parsley, nutmeg, lemon zest, fennel pollen or seeds and red pepper. Combine the meatball mixture and roll 1-inch balls. Add the remaining EVOO to pan over medium-high heat and brown the small meatballs (do this in 2 batches, if necessary, depending on the size of the pan, removing the browned ones to tray or platter).
With all the meatballs in the pan, add stock and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook at a low simmer until al dente. Wilt in the greens and add the juice of the lemon that has been zested. Serve with more cheese to pass.
