This is really good. I did double the meatballs and I used about 10 oz. of frozen spinach as that was what I had on hand. I also used homemade veggie broth for the same reason. I used ditalini pasta as well. Thanks so much for a great base recipe. Next time I will plan ahead so that I can make it exactly as written but this is a great recipe that is easy to substitute similar ingredients. Thanks again!

I really wanted this for dinner last night and didn't want it from a can. I followed the instructions other than adding the basil since I recently cleaned out my spice drawer and didn't have any. I though about adding a bit of pesto but it was frozen and I was starving. (Yeah, sure! lol) I also used a box of frozen spinach since that was what I had. It was so good I had it for dinner again tonight. Thank you!

I really enjoyed this on a cold evening. Quick and easy to make, and tastes good too! Next time I will make my meatballs a little smaller and add some garlic. We added salt at the table. I used half turkey stock and half vegetable stock in place of the chicken broth, because thats what I had in my freezer. I made this for Cookbook tag! Thanks for posting it.

Pretty good! Made meatballs with 1/2 Italian sausage and they were tasty. Had to add onion powder, minced garlic and salt to the broth, but really liked it.

The meatballs really knocked this one out of the park for me. I made them with 1 1/2 lb ground beef, 1 lb italian sausage, and then added some garlic and fresh red pepper to them. Out of this world good. I froze whatever I had left that wouldn't fit in the soup. The soup itself was very enjoyable too. I used a cheese grater on the carrots and put extra spinach in as well as onions. This may just be the soup I open with for the Italian dinner party I'm having. Thank you!
