    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a delicious soup that I often serve as a main dish with some French or Italian bread. I do like to add some sugar to taste because we like a sweeten up the sauce a little. I have to admit I sometimes cheat and use frozen meatballs and it comes out just fine. I also double the recipe because it is so good. Recipe is from Taste of Home's "The Best of Country Cooking" cookbook, second edition.

      This is a very good recipe plus very easy to make and in 30 minutes soups on. I made it almost as directed with exception of not having a 15 oz can of tomato sauce so put small one in and also a can of diced tomatoes. I also added a bit of garlic (have to as LOVE garlic LOL). And was out of thyme so used some italian herbs. It was pronouced a keeper by all and the recipe sent home with both daughters. Thanks so much for posting this tasty soup.
