It becomes a meal when meat and pasta are added. Your children will be eating vegetables you never thought they would eat when you serve them this soup! This recipe is one of the amazing soup recipes in La Cucina Marinello cookbook which you can purchase on our website at www.twofriendsinakitchen.com.

This soup is one that Joan (Linda's sister) learned from her friend Jeannie Carr, another fantastic cook in her own right. Jeannie invited Joan over for lunch one afternoon and served this soap with a simple green salad and crusty bread. Joan was hooked and has been making it on a regular basis every since. The soup is much like Grandma’s Meatball Soup but differs with the addition of tomatoes, making this a tomato based soup. It is perfect for a meal by itself or a starter. This soup is also great leftover. Joan usually makes a big batch and uses it all week long.
This creamy soup is not only delicious and nutritious. Our Cauliflower Cheese Soup is a great main course for your family served with crusty garlic bread or grilled cheese sandwich and salad.
