Pasta Meatball Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by jovigirl

Since making this recipe, I've got to say that it is lacking something in flavor. I hadn't made it when I posted it yet. The broth needs some kind of kick to it. I added more tomato sauce and pepper but that just didn't do it either. If you find a good addition please post it in a review. Thanks! (found in Easy Home Cooking)

My results were about the same as yours, Jovigirl. I tried to kick this up some by adding additional spices (Italian blend), more onions, etc. It turned out pretty well, but still needs something..... Wish I could figure out what it is because it's so simple! Thanks!
