Excellent soup!! It made me think of minestrone. Instead of beef broth, I added a packet of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix to the boiling water. I didn't have celery, so I put in corn. I really recommend that! Next time, I'll put in corn, celery, carrots, green beans, broccoli or cauliflower, and garbanzo beans. Also, I made my own meatballs (just made up my own recipe with ground beef, shredded cheddar, egg, milk, fresh bread crumbs, salt, pepper, lots of garlic powder and oregano) and that took hardly any work and it's just nicer when you make them yourself! I also added a couple teaspoons of Italian seasoning in place of the herbs mentioned, no salt... It was great! Next time I'll also red some crushed red pepper flakes. I used shells instead of macaroni and increased it to one and a half cups.



This was pretty good. I did change a few things. I omitted the celery & carrots all together. I added 30 meatballs instead of 20, and also increased the pasta by 1/3 cup. It was looking kind of runny, so I also added a small can of tomato paste. Instead of using the individual spices, I used 2 tablespoons of italian seasoning. I will be making this again. Its very easy, and quick to make!



Quite delicious. I added a few tbsps of jar spaghetti sauce and used shell pasta in place of the macaroni, since that is what I had in my pantry. Thanks Lisa!
