      Love this soup. Firstly, I replace the croutons with ground pork rinds to reduce the carbs even further and secondly, I put the meatballs in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes so I don't have to deal with the fry mess or the extra calories from adding oil to the skillet. Above all, this recipe is delicious. I love escarole.
