Easy Italian Meatball Soup

Hearty and full of flavour, this easy Italian meatball soup is the perfect comfort food for a chilly day. The rich tomato broth pairs beautifully with tender Italian-style meatballs to create an unforgettable soup the entire family will love.

It’s no secret I love comforting soups and stews. Living in Scotland means that I can pretty much enjoy a comforting bowl of goodness year-round. This easy Italian meatball soup is one of my favorite things to make when I’m torn between making a delicious soup or pasta (yet again!)
Making these hearty meatball soup in a rich tomato sauce means that I don’t have to choose. The combination of succulent Italian-style meatballs and pasta makes this soup incredibly satisfying, which means that you can serve it on its own.

However, you can transform dinner into a true feast by serving the meatball soup with a chunk of crusty bread. I sometimes make my trusty crispy focaccia to go with it.
