We are a big fan of meatballs and pasta, so after trying several versions of this soup this is the one we love the most. The lean turkey and variety of vegetables makes this a healthier soup choice.

If mini cheese raviolis cannot be found 3/4 cup of orzo pasta can be used as a subsitute. The raviolis tend to add another dimension to this delicious soup.
