  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the bell pepper and onion in the hot oil until the onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, meatballs, and water to the pot; bring to a boil. Stir the macaroni into the mixture and cook until the macaroni is cooked through, yet firm to the bite, 15 to 20 minutes.

Sounds like my favorite "comfort food" from my childhood. The only difference was that my mom cooked and broke up about 1 lb. of ground beef before following the rest of the recipe-- I can't wait to try it!



This isn't so much soup as just lots of tomato with some pasta & meatballs. We're not big tomato lovers, so I don't think we'll try it again.



This is SO good. The only changes I made were using home canned tomatoes (canned without salt), so I had to add a little extra salt, and I didn't have any "Italian seasoning" blend, so I used Basil, Oregano and Thyme. I was a little worried it would be excessive on the seasonings, but it's just right. Oh, and I cut back on the meatballs a bit. I added 18 instead of 25. It's not lacking. I'm tempted to add white and kidney beans and some corn, and maybe some sun dried tomatoes next time.
