30 Minute Spaghetti & Meatball Soup Recipe


Almost everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs, and this Spaghetti & Meatball Soup captures those flavors in a delicious soup that can be enjoyed any time of year. Busy cooks will appreciate it since it can be made in less than 30 minutes with only 10-15 minutes hands-on time; homemade meatballs from the versatile Basic Meatball Module are used as well as bottled spaghetti sauce and dried vegetables from the pantry shelves.

For those who have more time (or have vegetables in the refrigerator that need to be used), fresh peppers and onions can be chopped and added instead of the time-saving dehydrated vegetables, although there is really no difference in the taste of the final product. It might be tempting to use the store-bought frozen meatballs, but that’s where the line should be drawn; those meatballs contain only a percentage of ground beef or chicken and the rest is soy protein (aka fake meat) which is why they have a rubbery texture and substandard flavor. In truth, those frozen store-bought meatballs are not fit for dogs, let alone much-loved family members.

Crusty bread from the local grocery store or bakery is great with this soup, as well as a quick tossed salad. Spaghetti & Meatball Soup will soon become an oft-requested weeknight family favorite.
