Meatball Soup

These Fall days are among us and it is starting to get colder, rainy, snowing at places, burrrr.  What's better to serve your family on a cold blustery day, but a bowl of homemade soup. Soups usually don't take long to make, they can simmer all day on the stove or in a crock pot., and are very good for you.   That leaves all day for quilting!!  I make all kinds of different soups, but this is one of our favorites for a damp day.  

Meatball Soup

1  Cup uncooked spiral or shell pasta
32  -  1 to1 1/2 inch round meatballs  ( I prefer my own but you can use frozen)
2  Cans (14 1/2  ounces each) Chicken Broth
1  Can (28 ounces) Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1  Can (32 ounces) Mixed Vegetables
1  Can (16 ounces) Kidney or Pinto Beans, rinsed and drained
1  Can (26 1/2 ounces) Delmonte Spaghetti Sauce (plain)
1  Jar (4 1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained

Cook pasta according to package directions.   Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a soup kettle or Dutch oven.  Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.  Drain the pasta and add to your soup.  Simmer till heated thoroughly. 

The next best thing that goes with your soup is a loaf of homemade bread.  I make Honey Wheat Bread, that is our favorite. I put a little molasses on and dip it into my soup broth. uuummm good!

So what do you make on a cold, rainy, snowy day?

Happy Quilting......Have a Great Day!
