This is so good and easy. I make it even easier by using frozen meatballs and adding them uncooked and let them poach in the hot soup. I add some rice to the soup when I do that, or leave it out---still good. I also add 1/4 cup of ketchup for a little added flavor. I used some of my "after thanksgiving turkey bones stock" last weekend for a lovely pot of this soup.
