The main thing I miss when low carbing is a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs. This soup does the trick for me!

Can't wait to have this for lunch this week! I made chicken meatballs to use in place of the frozen ones, and I left the veggies a bit chunkier. Other than that, I didn't change anything, and it's fantastic. Made for PAC Spring 2007. Thanks for a great recipe!

My husband called this soup "awesome!" This was actually quite delicious - it really did taste like a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs! The Italian spices gave it a great flavor, and is was so hearty and filling! All of the lovely vegetables gave it a healthy feel, and it is such a unique and different soup - perfect for a cool night! The only changes I made was to omit the zucchini (only becuase I did not have any on hand). I also mixed up the spices a bit (I did not have any oregano, so I substituted a pizza seasoning, and I added several dashes of hot sauce, some pepper, and some seasoned salt). Next time I may use diced tomatoes with green chiles, which I think would be a great touch - but, needless to say, there will be a next time...and a next and a next! :-)Great recipe - thanks!
