Recipe by Debbie Stewart

From the Seattle P-I. Takes only an hour and makes great leftovers. I like to toast sourdough bread to dip in it.

This is a tasty soup,with a very easy prep time.I did find, that I ran out of meatballs quickly when I made this for a large group. I added macaroni to the broth that was left and had another meal instantly.
