Recipe Description

Our No-Time Meatball Soup recipe is a hearty, warm soup made with plenty of love. Is it possible to prepare homemade soup on a busy weeknight? It is if you start with frozen Farm Rich Italian Meatballs. Our meatballs are packed with high-quality, big-flavor ingredients, and you can’t beat their convenience. Just grab a bag and throw them in your broth to create an amazing soup in minutes.

This No-Time Meatball Soup recipe is reminiscent of a minestrone that takes hours to simmer on the stove, but with a few shortcuts and a bag of frozen Farm Rich Meatballs, you can get a rich taste and flavor in about 30 minutes. Fresh kale and veggies make this recipe hearty and delicious.

No-Time Meatball Soup is extremely adaptable: make it meatless by subbing in Garden Inspirations by Farm Rich Meatless Meatballs, add some cooked tortellini, or a can of roasted tomatoes. Serve a hot bowl of this delicious soup with a loaf of crusty bread and you’ve got a fast weeknight meal everyone will love.
