I made this soup the other night – soo good – kiddo and husband loved it!


  • 1 pkg pre-made Italian style meatballs (I use M&M brand)
  • 1 leek, washed and finely chopped, or 1/2 cup onion
  • 1-1/2 cup frozen mixed carrots/peas/beans
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can condensed tomato soup (or 1 qt home canned chopped tomatoes, drained and pureed)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • Parmesan cheese for sprinkling


  • Thaw and lightly heat meatballs in a pot with a bit of oil – remove from pot
  • add leek or onion and cook till soft
  • add frozen veggies to pot – cook till begins to soften, stir often
  • add meatballs, tomato soup/puree, water, broth and bring to medium boil about 20 min
  • let cool slightly, dish into bowls, sprinkle with Parmesan and enjoy with crusty rolls
