I really like recipes that make use of frozen mixed vegetables -- I feel so virtuous eating them and have none of the work preparing them.! And this one has frozen meatballs, too. Talk about ease-of-preparation! Recipe from TOH.

I loved this quick to prepare soup. I doubled the recipe so it would fill my crockpot and didn't thaw the vegetables and meatballs before adding. I had the crockpot on high for 1 hour and on low for another 3 hours. The pasta added at the end was whole wheat rotini. I'll be freezing the leftovers for another day. Thanks for posting.

Its been getting colder here in the midwest and I was craving a warn bowl of soup. This was that and more! I used a large (29 oz) can of mixed veggies instead of frozen because I had it on hand. I used "The Best Homemade Meatballs" from Family Fun Magazine which I'll post here in a minute. Also used 3/4 of a (16oz) bag of Cavatappi. It turned out AWESOME!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!

I did not have any stewed tomatoes so I added a jar of spaghetti sauce - it was delicious!
