Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

My family absolutely loves spaghetti and meatballs, so I was pretty sure this Spaghetti and Meatball Soup would be a big hit at my house.
I was not disappointed, and neither was my family!

They all devoured this soup and went back for seconds–and possibly thirds, but who’s counting, right? With a loaf of crusty bread and a nice green salad, this is the kind of comfort food that everyone loves.

I can count on one hand the meals my entire family likes. This one made the cut! There weren’t even enough leftovers for my lunch the next day!

If you’re thinking this basically looks like a soupy version of spaghetti and meatballs, well….you’re right! But if you think about it, it’s a pretty great idea for a soup.

Lot of meatballs and pasta in a savory tomato based broth–what not to love about that? Best of all this is the kind of meal that’s a hit with people of all ages. Kids love it, and so do grown-ups.

Which means you really can’t go wrong with this recipe.

Best of all, this soup is so very easy to make! Especially if you use the precooked frozen meatballs. I’m always look for shortcuts in the kitchen, and frozen meatballs are something I always have on hand.

Of course, if you really want to go all out, you can definitely make your own meatballs. But if you’re looking to get dinner on the table in a hurry, I definitely recommend the frozen variety.

Jarred marinara sauce is another secret to getting this soup on the table in a hurry. It acts as a wonderful, flavorful base for the soup broth, and comes with all of the seasonings added!

My personal favorite is Prego Traditional, but any brand should work just fine.

With a sprinkling of grated Parmesan and fresh basil to finish things off, this soup tastes like it simmered all day, but comes together in about 20 minutes. It’s the perfect meal for hungry, busy families like mine.

Pasta Meatball Soup

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carando®. All opinions are 100% mine.

This easy Pasta Meatball Soup is a hearty, delicious, make-you-feel-good recipe. Made in just 20 minutes and in one bowl, the kiddos and adults will LOVE this meal!

I used Carando Recipes Italian Meatballs and just a few other ingredients to create a simple, yet slurp-worthy soup. I picked up the Carando Italian Meatballs at my local Kroger in the meat department. I was super stoked to find a brand of meatballs that&rsquos ready to cook, but tasty enough your family will think you slaved away in the kitchen all day. Carando uses authentic Italian recipes to craft their Italian Sausage, Meatballs and Charcuterie items that will make your family VERY excited to come to the dinner table.

No slaving away for this recipe! Only 20 minutes was all I needed to have a satisfying, family-friendly meal ready to serve. And boy did my family love this meal&hellip we didn&rsquot have as much leftover as I would have liked. Yep, even my notoriously picky kiddos gobbled this one up.

The Carando Italian Meatballs give this Pasta Meatball Soup such a lovely flavor, almost like I&rsquom enjoying a meal straight from Italy. Ha! I wish!

The next best thing is happening at Kroger and Kroger banner stores. Kroger has a Taste of Italy event going on from now until September 24th. They will be sharing authentic Italian flavors and Italian meal inspiration with in-store demos and displays. Contact your local Kroger store for specific dates and times. Sounds super fun and tasty!

This Pasta Meatball Soup couldn&rsquot be more perfect for upcoming cool fall weather! You guys are going to love it! It&rsquos:

And delicious&hellip comfort food at its best!!

I love making this kind of meal when you need to entertain but don&rsquot want to spend a lot of time and money on the meal. It&rsquos also a great soup to make ahead for lunches and easy weeknight dinners throughout the week.

We loved this. I made it with turkey meatballs and used kale instead of escarole. I will brown the meatballs next time as the boiled turkey looked a little pale and sickly. While it has some Italian ingredients, even the garlic is pretty subtle and this is more or less a generic chicken soup with vegetables. That said, the combination of kale and meatballs keeps it far from boring. Use good quality chicken stock as that is a big part of the soup's flavor.

Meatballs are super tender, and soup has great flavor. Much more than the sum of its parts! Will definitely make again

This is our new favorite! I just made it for my family for Valentine's Day. It was a hit, so I'll definitely be making it again soon. I made extra meatballs and pasta and will extend it with more chicken stock for another meal.

This is the closest recipe to the one I grew up with in my Italian-American family. Unfortunately, Mom never used written recipes and when she passed, I tried to recreate this using several other recipes for this soup. Believe me, this is the best and only one I use. I substitue ditalini pasta for the orzo.

Excellent! Tasty, needs nothing else. Used ground turkey instead of ground beef.

This soup is amazing! I made it on Christmas Eve and it was gone, nothing leftover. Everyone LOVED it. I doubled the meatballs and the pasta. I added minced garlic and chopped parsley to the meatballs. Absolutely delicious!

This was ok, not the best soup I've made, a little on the bland side. The meatballs were good though, might try those with something else.

This was one of the best soups I have ever made I made it with just picked vegetables which might be why it was so delectable. But wow.

This was so easy. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and regular rather then low sodium broth, but it was still great. Absolutely perfect when finished with fresh ground pepper at the table.

Made this last night for my husband and two grown sons. Everyone loved it! It's full of flavor and easy to make. Used Pacific brand organic chicken stock, and followed the recipe exactly. Also made the penne with two cheeses and olives, thinking the soup wouldn't be enough, but it was plenty. Having the penne tonight.

Meatball And Vegetable Soup With Pasta Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carando®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Fall is almost here which has me craving cooler weather and all the comfort foods that come with it. Some of my favorites are pasta with a spicy sauce, creamy soups, and anything made with the traditional fall spices.

I enjoy trying different dishes and doing makeovers of old favorites, which is why I just had to turn meatballs into soup ala this Meatball and Vegetable Soup with Pasta Recipe. And, I have to say I&rsquom SO glad I did.

This meatball soup is warm and hearty for those cool days while having a nice meat and veggie balance. While I&rsquod love to say I have all the time in the world to make everything from scratch, we all know that&rsquos just not true if you want dinner on the table for the family before bedtime. That&rsquos why I take shortcuts where I can with tried and true brands like the Carando Abruzzese Italian Meatballs that you can find at your local Kroger grocery stores.

Carando has been around since the early 1900&rsquos so you know their products have to be good. The Abruzzese meatballs contain blended Italian cheese and herbs that help to make this soup extra flavorful and honestly likely taste better than any I could put together myself.

We really enjoy Italian-style dinners but good food often takes a lot of time we just don&rsquot have during the week. That&rsquos why I love that I can have all the Italian flavors I love in minutes with the various meatballs, sausages, and Charcuterie items that Carando makes.

I especially like their meatballs because not only are they delicious and stay moist and tender in cooking, but they are uniform in size and shape so you know they&rsquore all going to be done cooking at the same time. I have to admit it&rsquos hard for me to not sneak a couple after browning them before they go into the soup to simmer.

But, they are extra good swimming in this beefy tomato broth, with lots of veggies like carrots, peas, and mushrooms, and pasta. It&rsquos a complete meal in a bowl but I also like to serve it with a garnish of freshly grated parmesan cheese and some chopped basil on the top with a slice of garlic toast on the side to dunk.
