This is an awesome recipe. I made it yesterday and it just keeps getting better. I used Morningstar Farms veggie meatballs and it turned out perfect. The parmesan cheese makes it extra special. This is a definite keeper.
This is an awesome recipe that I will be keeping. Especially on those nights that you have no interest in cooking. It was easy and delicious. Served with crackers and toasty french bread for dipping! I used the Kittencal meatball recipe for the meatballs!! It was heaven in a bowl!! The ate it up and asked for seconds. Definitely a keeper! Thanks Derf!
Funny how the simplest recipes are often the tastiest! This is so easy and has been a hit with everyone every time. I cook everything but the pasta about 20 minutes or so to soften the veggies before I throw the noodles in, then cook 10 more. I also add in more beef broth for more soup. Amazing with a loaf of hot french bread!
