I serve it with saltine crackers, you could certainly make a batch of cornbread.
- 1 batch of the best meatball recipe ever, cooked
- 48 oz chicken broth
- 25 oz jar spaghetti sauce
- 10 oz frozen spinach
- 13 oz can cannellini beans, undrained
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 8-10 baby carrots chopped
- 1-2 c ditalini pasta (you decide how much)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Parmesan cheese, for topping
If you have your batch of homemade meatballs made then this comes together quickly. I suggest making a large batch and freezing them in 1-2 dozen portions.
I used one whole batch in our soup, which was about 30 meatballs.
You could also use frozen store bought meatballs if you want.
In a large soup pot add you meatballs, frozen spinach, onion, can of beans and carrots.
Then add the jar of spaghetti sauce and chicken broth.
Cook over medium high heat and bring to a boil.
Stir occasionally. You don’t want anything to stick to the bottom.
After cooking for about 20 minutes, add a cup or so of water if you need to.
Add the pasta. I did two cups.
Stir and cook about 9-15 minutes, or until the pasta is done.
Taste it. Does it need a little salt and pepper? Add some to your liking.
Scoop up servings in bowls and top with Parmesan cheese if you want.
My husband had three bowls….
I had two.
For kids who do not like soup you can drain the juice and serve this on a plate like a pasta casserole.
It’s amazing and perfect for a nice cold night.
