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!

This is a great soup and super easy. I had to vary a little because I forgot to buy the meatballs and was too lazy to make some! I fried up some hamburg and used that. Next time I will take your hint Derf, and add some pepper flakes...thanks for the recipe!

I really loved this soup. It is easy to make and very flavorful. I will definitely make again. I added a can of beans to increase the fiber and make it a really complete meal. I just realized I forgot to sprinkle the parmesan. Can't wait to try it with the cheese.

Soo good and very quick if you are short on time! I doubled the recipie and used a large can of vegetables instead of the frozen. Will definitely make this again!

This was a hit for us. It came together quickly and a double batch was enough for 4 adults and 2 kids to have seconds and a bowl of leftovers for one of the adults. We enjoyed it with a roll of french bread. Will definitely make it again! Thanks for sharing.

I made this soup for mine and SO's Dinner on 3/10/11.I made my own broth by using two bouillon cubes and 14 ounces of water, also used more Italian seasoning than the recipe called for. Since I didn't have the pasta called for, elbow macaroni was used.Since there were some leftover veggies that needed to be used,those were added.This was a very nice " Tummy Warming " recipe for a chilly night. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
