Combine meats, bread crums, pepper, salt, bsil, parsley and eggs in a bowl and mix until well blended. Form into tiny meatballs about l to l-l/2 tsp. of meat (the small cookie scoop works perfectly). Bake on cookie sheet for 35 mins. at 350. Meanwhile bring the broth to a low boil and add spinach. Cover and cook 5 mins. Add meatballs to the hot broth along with the garlic, bouquet garni. Add pasta and continue to boil until pasta is tender, 8 mins. no more. Remove from heat so pasta doesn’t get overdone. Stir in cheese and serve.
