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 like a minestrone with meatballs!! It really was easy & fast to put together. I used my own meatballs, but used around 10 of them. I used low sodium chicken broth & added 1/4 tsp oregano. I think next time I'll add some salt & pepper just for extra flavor. I used whole wheat elbows & simmer time was about 8 minutes. I also sauteed some chopped onion & garlic before adding everything else. I might add a can of white beans next time to add more fiber!

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.
