I LOVE this recipe. I love meatballs and I love soup. I did make my own meatballs instead of using frozen. Next time I will use fresh veggies.

This is my new favorite soup. It's very easy and so tasty. I've made it twice in the past couple of weeks. The first time I made it with Italian vegetables like the recipe calls for. My daughter stopped by after work and took some home for she & husband. She told me it was so good, she didn't even pick out the veggies she didn't like. The second time I used a bag of corn, green bean, carrot mixture. I liked it better.

Very simple and very tasty. I will definitely be making it again.

Couldn't be simpler. There's no chopping, slicing or cutting vegetables. And there's no browning meat first. The only thing I did differently was added some salt, dried basil and "Perfect Pinch" garlic & bell pepper seasonings. I also added a little more pasta. It was so simple, I would feel guilty to say I made it if it weren't how

Delicious! I did add more vegetables than required as my husband enjoys a hearty soup. Also, next time I'd add 2/3 c. small pasta shells rather than 1/3. It was hard to find pasta (maybe because I added more vegies). All-in-all, a wonderfully tasty dish! Will definitely make it again!
