"This soup is so easy to put together and very tasty. I didn't have spinach so I chopped up some onion and added some thinly sliced carrots which cooked while the meatballs cooked. We both loved it! Thanks for posting!"

"We loved this soup! It is easy to prepare, had all the ingredients on hand, very very tasty. Only problem is that it went too fast. I am going to double or even triple it next time."

"Looks good, but I felt like it lacked flavor or a flavor that I like anyways. I added garlic and more salt. The garlic really helped."

"I've made this several times because it's really easy and really good! Not sure why it's called soup because there's very little broth - of course I use frozen tortellini and meatballs and add extra of both. And another bonus of this yummy pot cooking (less mess)!"
