We love Italian Wedding, or “married” soup so much, we decided to reinvent it as a pasta dish. We've kept the spirit, but changed some of the parts. Ditalini is traded in for ziti, and kale is upgraded to fresh Swiss chard. However, the best parts remain the same: the savory pork and rich Italian flavors, including cheesy, nutty Parmesan, making this “marriage” just as loving and successful as the soup variety.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Before You Cook
Cook the Pasta
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 9-11 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander. Set aside.
While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

Cook the Ground Pork

Add ground pork to hot pan and stir often until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.
