Meatball and Tortellini Soup--**New Top Recipe!!**

1 lb meatballs (can buy frozen or make your own with my meatball recipe)
1 qt canned tomatoes (I use the chili ready ones)

4 c water
1 T chili powder (Omit this if you use chili ready tomatoes)
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 t basil
2 t oregano
Vegetables of your choice: I use carrots, celery, onion, and zucchini.  You can also try green beans, corn, or peas.
8 oz tortellini

In a large soup pan, combine tomatoes, water, spices, and vegetables.  Cook until vegetables are tender.  If you are using boxed tortellini, cook as directed in a separate pan, then add to soup.  If using frozen, add to soup directly along with meatballs.  Continue to cook soup until tortellini and meatballs are hot.


  1. Ooohhhh I had some of this at Thanksgiving this past year, and it was to.die.for.
    We may be eating this later in the week :)

  2. It's definitely a favorite of mine!! I think I originally got the recipe from Donna Bryan. I remember eating it there growing up. Mmmm!!
