This meatball minestrone is a friend and family favorite. It's even better the next day, if there's any left over! Serve with crusty bread and Parmesan cheese to top the soup.

  • Combine beef broth, tomatoes, corn, celery, cabbage, onion, zucchini, wine, parsley, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large pot. Stir in browned meatballs. Simmer soup until vegetables are tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Stir in broken spaghetti and cook until tender, about 20 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Use a combination of broth and water equal to 4 cups.

This turned out good. My favorite part is that the meatballs did not call for an egg. While of love eggs on their own, I do not like the spongy texture they give meatballs. The one thing that I did not like about the recipe was the tomatoes. They never broke down into smaller more manageable size. I would use crushed or diced next time. I did need to add more liquid before adding the noodles but overall a good recipe. Read More
