Quick Italian Meatball Soup

If you have been following With A Blast for a while now, you should know that we love meatballs served in every imaginable way. This very quick Italian Meatball Soup is one of the favorites in our house.

As I have mentioned before, I loathe spending time in my kitchen when it is cold as my kitchen is quite large with openings into the laundry. A breakfast counter running over into the passage, another entrance into the passage as well as an entrance into the dining room.

That is a lot of openings and entrances without any doors to lock in the heat, hence my preference to quick and easy recipes when it is cold.

Quick Italian Meatball Soup

This quick Italian Meatball soup is hearty, thick and just spicy enough for everyone to enjoy. I do add canned Tomatoes, but you can use fresh Tomatoes in place of the can of Chopped Tomatoes.

Unless you know the ingredients in the canned Italian Tomatoes, I would stick to the canned.

I only add a little bit of Quinoa to thicken the soup slightly. You can use more if you’d like to, but take care that your soup does not turn into a stew. Which might also not be bad, by the way!

That looks wonderful. I bet kale and barley would make acceptable substitutes as well.
