a bunch of spinach leaves and tender stalksss much as you like
In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, garlic, carrot, scallions, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
Form the mixture into balls about an inch and a half in diameter.
Melt the butter in a pan. Brown the meatballs in the hot butter.
Pour in the broth and bring to the boil. Add the macaroni, stir gently, bring to the boil once more, lower the heat and simmer until the pasta is al dente, about ten minutes. The soup will thicken as the pasta releases starch into the broth.
Pour in the corn. Stir. Add more salt and pepper at this point, if needed. Continue simmering for another ten minutes. The pasta is better when cooked really soft but not soft enough to lose its shape.
Add the spinach leaves, stir and simmer for another three minutes. Serve hot.
