I tasted this delicious soup in a restaurant, and when I couldn't persuade the chef to share the recipe. I began to experiment on my own. Finally, I came up with this blend, which is very close to what I'd tasted. The secret ingredient, I think, is sweet potatoes!

Marcia Piaskowski of Plantsville,Connecticut shares the recipe for this satisfying soup that uses frozen meatballs. It cooks on the stovetop in half an hour, but Marcia often doubles the recipe and simmers it in the slow cooker for easy preparation.
We always seem to have venison in the freezer, so I came up with the recipe for this delicious soup as a different way to use some of that meat. It makes a great lunch or light supper served with garlic bread and a salad.
