Roasted Veggie and Meatball Soup Recipe

Roasted Veggie and Meatball Soup Recipe

I put together this appetizing soup almost every Sunday during our South Dakota winters. A variety of roasted vegetables and turkey meatballs perk up the broth. What a wonderful way to warm up! —Sandy Lund, Brookings, South Dakota

"I really wasn't sure how the roasted vegetables would be in a soup, but thought I'd give it a try. Soooo glad I did - they were delicious! I made a few changes - I didn't roast the onion, but chopped it & added it to the broth. I used ground beef & beef broth as I didn't have ground turkey. The Parmesan in the meatballs really adds a great flavor to this soup."
