This recipe for Spaghetti Soup with Mini Meatballs was created by me during a collaboration with Viva Italia Days at Publix: Hunts Tomatoes, Progresso™ Brand Products, Kraft Parmesan Cheese, Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Breads, Betty Crocker™ Cookies. The information, products and Publix gift cards were provided by General Mills through Linqia.
One of my family’s go-to meals is Spaghetti. I’d venture a guess that we’re not the only family that has that default meal always ready in the cupboard. It’s an easy one pot meal and is pretty much a dinner that everyone loves. But sometimes the family needs a little bit of variety, which is why I created this fun spin on the Italian favorite… Spaghetti Soup with Mini Meatballs!
This dish tastes and looks like it takes hours to create, which is great when you’re trying to impress your husband or dinner guests, but it’s so simple and features homemade meatballs that are absolutely delicious! And instead of using a pre-made spaghetti sauce, I use cans of diced and crushed tomatoes to keep the sauce and soup full of flavor, with a more homemade look and feel.
You know me – easy and simple is the way I like it and one of the best shortcuts I have found for this meal are ingredients like using Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes [with added Basil, Garlic, and Oregano] and Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. Both cut out the need to add more spices and make the recipe even easier. I love a good shortcut in any recipe, don’t you!?
