Wintertime Meatball Soup

 Wintertime Meatball Soup
This recipe is versatile. If you like, you can vary the vegetables that are added to the soup. In my version, I add a bit of chopped jalapeno pepper for some heat and serve the robust soup with cornbread or garlic bread.—Eunice Justice, Cody, Wyoming
