In a large skillet/saucepan heat olive oil, add garlic and onions, sauteing for 3-5 minutes. Add broth, un-drained tomatoes, spinach, and 1 tsp oregano, bringing to a boil. Gently add meatballs (so it doesn’t splash!), cover, reduce the heat and continue to simmer 20 minutes (or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked).
