|8 out of 8 super soupers deem this "thumbs up!"|
Our version of Grandpa's meatball soup is as follows. This simple soup had some shortcuts, but it didn't make it any less delicious. It would be perfect to throw together on a cold and wintery day when time is short:
1 large can diced tomatoes, 28 ounces
1 large container beef broth, 32 ounces
2 cups water
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
8 oz frozen mini meatballs
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables - carrots, beens, corn
2/3 cup orzo or other small shaped pasta, uncooked
Combine tomatoes with their juice, the broth, water, and seasoning in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Stir in meatballs, vegetables, and orzo. Return to a boil; cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, or until pasta and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
