  1. Add all meatball ingredients except olive oil to a large mixing bowl.  Gently mix until fully combined.  Shape into small meatballs, about 1 inch in diameter.

  2. Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil in large dutch oven over medium high heat.  Add about half the meatballs and cook about 3 minutes per side, turning to brown all over.  Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining meatballs.

  3. Add 1 Tablespoon olive oil to the same dutch oven and reduce heat to medium low.  Add the onion, carrots and celery and cook 5 minutes, until softened.  Add garlic and cook 30 seconds, or until fragrant.  Season with salt, pepper, and dill.

  4. Add wine and deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits.  Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

  5. Add pasta and meatballs to the pot and cook 8-10 minutes, until pasta is tender and meatballs are cooked through.  During the last minute of cooking, add spinach and let it wilt.

  6. Serve hot, sprinkled with shredded Parmesan cheese.
