"I used frozen Italian meatballs, the salt, pepper, and parsley. This soup was delish."

"This would make a better chicken soup. The meatballs are tasteless boiled hamburger. Dropping the raw meat into the broth causes a terrible odder. The meatballs need more seasoning & browned until almost done before dropping them into the broth, then it might be a good soup. Sorry!"
