Italian Meatball Soup – Recipe

With the cooler weather descending upon us, soup just sounds so good lately!  Here is one of our family’s faves, Italian Meatball Soup.


Italian Meatball Soup


I make this with our homemade chicken broth and have been using these new meatballs I found.  My husband prefers this with orzo pasta, but I don’t always have that on hand.  For the frozen mixed veggies, I use an organic blend of peas, corn, and carrots… but you could use whatever sounds good!  At any given time, I usually have all these ingredients in my pantry and freezer, so this is a great last minute meal.  And it’s quick to make!
