A yummy change from beef stew on a cold winter's night. Serve with warm bread or bread sticks.

Top Review by PalatablePastime

This is a very hearty soup with a great flavor from the meatballs and the spinach. I like it a lot and plan to make it many times. The only suggestion I would offer others is that I wish I had doubled this recipe as it went very fast and I could easily have used more. Thanks for a grat recipe, Karen!
