      This is a fantastic soup! Very easy to make and not at all expensive. The meatballs were excellent! My husband and I love soups and we both gave it a 10!

      This is fantastic! I've never made wedding soup with both ground beef and sausage before and really enjoyed the 'kick' the sausage gave to the meatballs. I subbed fresh, chopped Swiss Chard for the frozen spinach and dried basil for the fresh (used 1 tablespoon). Also used ditalini pasta instead of the penne. This smelled so good while it was cooking. Served it with some fresh bread. Got a huge vote by DH to make this again! Congrats on winning the football pool!

      Great soup! My husband must have said at least 3 times how much he liked it. It's simple and very hearty. Other versions of wedding soup that I've had include tomatoes, but I didn't miss them at all. Thanks a bunch, Lainey.
