Very good basic meatball soup recipe. It sure doesn't get any easier than this! I followed the recipe exact with the exception that my crushed tomatoes were in juice, not puree. I don't think that would make a major difference in flavor though, and this soup turned out very yummy! Made for PAC Fall 09.
