Italian Meatball Tomato Soup

Kelly Allen


This new twist on the classic was something I created to use up some extra items in the kitchen. My husband was surprised and now requests this quite frequently in the chilly months, along with a big, gooey grilled cheese sandwich. Who can resist that classic combo??
