Turkey Meatballs and Vegetable Soup

Our home economists combined ready-made turkey meatballs with fresh and frozen vegetables to come up with this nicely seasoned soup. Small families can enjoy half now and freeze the rest for later. But bigger families may want to double the recipe, so there’s plenty leftover for a second meal. Sprinkle servings with Parmesan cheese just before serving.

    I did not care for this at all and could not even finish half of a bowl. Luckily, I served it with a grilled cheese sandwich so I had something to eat.

    Great use of meatballs. I used frozen meatballs that I bought from Sam's Club. I followed the recipe as written to the end, (Then) I added a hearty handful of egg noodles. Just felt like that would finish off the dish and it did. I didn't have to add any additional liquid for the noodles. Great recipe, I will save it in my recipe box and use again.

    We really liked this recipe. We added a 9 oz pack of fresh tortellinis and another cup of chicken broth. We used beef meatballs as that is what we had on hand. Very delicious. Thanks!
