If there’s one soup on repeat at my house of late it’s this Italian Meatball Soup and for good reason. It’s delicious. Not only is it delicious, it’s also quick and easy. 

As in, no more than 30 minutes from start to finish, and on those cold, winter nights what’s better than a pipping hot bowl of soup? Not much, IMO. Pair it with a grilled cheese, and you’re good to go.

The real hero of this soup though? Johnsonville Italian Meatballs. They’re ready in a flash and packed with flavor. So much so that a friend commented on how they’re usually not a fan of meatballs, but now they’re hooked.
