This hearty soup is the perfect thing for chilly autumn nights. The meatballs add both texture and protein, and with the addition of noodles it’s a full meal in one.
Prepare the Hearty Meatball Soup
1. In an eight-quart pot, sauté onions and celery for 10 minutes or until slightly soft. Add the rest of the vegetables and sauté for an additional five minutes. Add tomato paste, water, and spices and bring to a boil.
2. In a bowl, mix together meatball ingredients. Form balls and add to the soup once it’s boiling.
3. Cook covered for one hour and 15 minutes.
For a one-pot-meal version, add thin noodles and cook for an additional eight minutes before serving.
