Can you hear the music playing? Tonight I am listening to Something a little bit softer.. Eyes Without A Face sung by Billy Idol is playing in the background, and I am sipping slowly on a premium tequila out of a glass made of Himalayan rock salt. It is so awesome!
In a large pot on the stove, set the temp to medium high.
Add in the zucchini, carrots, potato, onion, garlic, and celery.
Cook the vegetables until the onion becomes soft, and translucent.
Once the onion is soft, add in the chicken stock, tomatoes, and italian seasoning.
Bring to a boil, then set to a simmer.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Next add in the chicken breast.
Simmer for 5 minutes.
While that is simmering, in a bowl mix in the turkey, parmesan, red pepper flakes, thyme, salt, egg and bread crumbs.
Form the turkey mixture into small balls about a Tbsp amount each.
Next, gently drop the rolled balls into the soup.
Simmer for 10 more minutes.
