Sheila’s Albondigas (Meat Ball) Soup

This is one of my all time favorite go to soups that I have created, changed and perfected over the years. My measurements are estimated as close to what I use as I don't really measure anything. I love making large batches to freeze single serving bowls that you can just pop right into the microwave. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
