Make Something Mondays: Meatball Soup




It's January, it's cold, and we live in what must be the coldest house on the planet. It's perfect for making soup! This meatball soup is easy, filling, and yummy, so if you've never made soup before it's a good recipe to start with.

Ingredients
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup dried parsley
8 cups chicken broth
1 15-oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1 10-oz. package frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 8-oz. package ditalini or large orzo

Put chicken broth and diced tomatoes (with liquid) in a large soup pot and bring to a low boil. Mix ground beef, parmesan cheese, and parsley; shape into tiny meatballs (think canned spaghetti size meatballs).
Drop meatballs into simmering broth and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in broccoli.
When soup has resumed boiling, add pasta. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often, and add salt and pepper to taste.

Happiness reigns.
