Vegetable Soup With Tiny Meatballs

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Janeydoe

My Mom used to make this soup for us when we were growing up. It calls for 1/2 cup fine pasta but she always dumped a lot more pasta in than what was called for :) Serve with lots of parmesan cheese, we loved it!

I made this soup but added one package of frozen spinach. I wanted more veggies in my soup. And then I topped my soup with feta cheese and it was delicious. I will make this again.
