I'm going to re-write the recipe.
I use one small chopped onion. Never seen the frozen chopped variety.
A block of frozen, chopped spinach is fine if you don't have fresh.
Browning the meatballs is a nice touch but uneccessary and it simply dirties another pan.
I use the cheap "sawdust" variety pamesan in a green can vs. the real thing and I use it sparingly (sodium issue). This is a simple soup no need to make it any more difficult (or expensive).
