    Perfect! Upped the garlic in the meatballs as ground turkey can be bland and did one can diced tomatoes and one can mild Rotel for a slight kick

    This was fantastic! I did not realize that you could cook meatballs directly in the soup, but it worked perfectly. The soup was delicious. I added orzo pasta, which I think is in most Italian wedding soup, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly.

    I did not care for this soup. I followed directions exactly, maybe if I had added other ingredients it would have been better. I made it with the intent of taking some to a friend but not going to do that as it just wasn't good.

    I loved, my husband loved, and my neighbor! I'm sure it would have been amazing alone, but I added some zucchini, mushrooms, and used fresh tomatoes instead, along with some oregano. Made a big ole pot and I'll be enjoying it throughout the weekend. Loved loved loved! So simple!

    Amazing soup. Made it twice now for week long lunches. Warms up very well. I generally add an extra can of chicken broth and small pasta. #pastajunkie

    My whole family LOVED this soup! (And it's nearly impossible to get the five of them to agree on anything!) I substituted two cans of tomato sauce because I didn't have diced, and I omitted the cheese so it was completely non-dairy -- it was still delicious.

    Excellent healthy soup! Thanks. I did use almond meal instead of bread crumbs and they are delish!
