This was pretty good. I too pre cooked the meat balls before adding in the to other ingredients.

I had the idea to make this soup when Campbell's came out with their version. It tastes wonderful! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef to decrease the amount of fat! Yummy

Great hearty simple soup....BBF thought the broth needed more flavor so I added some pepper and lemon juice to up the taste. Thanks for a new quick healthy dinner for the cold nights coming soon.

YUM! After reading many reviews, I decided to cook my meatballs in the oven before adding them to the soup. I used one frozen 10oz pkg spinach and it was maybe slightly too much, but that was my fault. Overall it turned out great. I will definitely make this again!

My husband gave it a 5+ star(something he does very little with new dishes), I would of also given it a 5 star if I had not altered it as much because the broth lacked a little bit of flavor. I made the meat mixture with 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb ground pork. I used a lemon baller to measure out the meat balls. Also added 2 tbspns half/half, dash of paprika, cumin, pepper, and salt. I think that these extra seasonings gave the broth a nice subtle flavor which in the end we enjoyed very much. I will be making again, with the new changes. Thanks for posting!

This was okay, but I think the meatballs definitely need to be browned first and put in the soup just long enough to heat them through. The boiled meat didn't look appetising in the soup and it also released a lot of fat into the soup, which I had to spend ages skimming off. The overall flavour was good though.

Hearty and warming. Simple flavors combined to make a wonderful soup. Made my meatballs a little too big...about 1/2", next time will try to make them 1/4". Thanks for the wonderful recipe! :)
