Hearty Italian Meatball Soup

pinit

When you are in need of a good hearty budget friendly meal, you can always count on Hearty Italian Meatball Soup to hit the spot.

I like to use turkey burger, however I have also made this using ground chuck for the meatballs, either option gives the meatballs good flavor.

When you slow cook the soup overnight, this really allows the vegetables to soften.

The flavors in the crock pot, really come to life as it slowly simmers and the you sleep.

I love waking up to a house that has a deep aroma of Italian cooking flavors flowing thru the house.

 

 

The final touch is adding the meatballs and mini pasta noodles. I may or may not sneak a meatball or two prior to putting them in the soup.  I really cant help myself, these meatballs are so delicious!!
