This is a simple soup that is very versatile. It goes together quickly, but you can also use frozen meatballs to make it even faster. I love to empty the refer and throw all kinds of veggies in this also, so it comes out different every time. I think that it has a bit of a tomato-y flavor made as directed, so I cut back a little on the tomato paste. From Elegant Meals with Inexpensive Meats.
