Meatball Minestrone Recipe
"MM-M-M, just thinking about this soup simmering on the stove gets me hungry for some! It's fairly easy to make, and rather quick as soups go. With the cooler months just around the corner, this minestrone will appear on our table more frequently—and hopefully on yours, too!"
