I’m bringing back my recipe for Spaghetti and Meatball soup today. The whole entire post needed a makeover with new photos and a video! I posted this recipe back in 2012 and it went by unnoticed which is kind of sad. It is a great recipe. The meatballs and spaghetti all cook in a tomato broth with onions, carrots, and zucchini. To polish this soup off, garnish it with some parmesan cheese or parsley. You can make your own meatballs and I have a recipe for 1 point meatballs. I prefer using frozen meatballs for this, because, you know me! I LOVE using any short cut I can when making recipes easy.
P.S. I have many recipes in my archive that need a makeover so be on the look for those. I will be posting quite a few of them!
How to make Spaghetti and Meatball Soup
