January 23, 2016 Recipe

Hi everyone in Nancyland. This is a soup recipe that Lucy requested and I hope she likes it as much as we do. It is on our regular menu rotation and had been for several years. You can get creative and make your own meatballs but I do not. It is a very quick soup to put together and simmering for about 20 minutes ( I let it simmer a bit longer than recipe calls for) and it is done.

Donna's Meatball Minestrone Recipe

3 cups water
2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with onion and garlic, undrained
2 (14 ounce) cans beef broth
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 (16 ounce) package frozen cooked Italian-style meatballs
2 cups frozen Italian-blend vegetables
1 cup small star-shaped dried pasta ( I use macaroni shape)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cans dark red kidney beans drained

Stir water, tomatoes, beef broth, and Italian seasoning together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Add meatballs, Italian-blend vegetables, beans and pasta to the pot. Return broth to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the meatballs are heated through and the pasta is tender, about 10 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
Original recipe makes 8 servings
