Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

Spaghetti and Meatball Soup: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

My kids love spaghetti and meatballs, so when I saw a recipe for one of there favorite meals in soup form, I had a really good feeling it was going to be a hit. And I was right, they loved it. Next time I make it I will have to double it so it last a bit longer.

Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

Ingredients:
  • 16 ounces frozen meatballs
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 24 ounces marinara sauce
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta, broken into about 2 inch pieces
  • grated parmesan cheese
Directions:
  1. Prepare the meatballs according to the package directions.
  2. In a large pot add the beef stock, marinara sauce and water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the basil until well mixed.
  3. Add in the pasta and prepared meatballs to the pot. Reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the pasta is cooked.
  4. Serve and top each bowl with parmesan cheese.
Enjoy!!!

Notes:
You can use homemade cooked meatballs instead of the frozen.

I used my homemade Crock Pot Marinara Sauce.
