How to make
Italian Meatball Soup is quick and easy comfort food that takes just 30 minutes to make!
In a large bowl, add all meatball ingredients excluding the olive oil. Mix with clean hands until completely combined, but don't over-mix.
Line the meatballs in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet with some space between them.
Using a pastry brush, brush the meatballs with olive oil.
Broil meatballs for 8-12 minutes, or until browned.
While the meatballs are cooking, add onion, carrots, garlic, and olive oil to a large pot over medium heat. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Add the beef broth, crushed tomatoes, vegetable stock, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes.
Bring the pot to a simmer (not a boil). Once they're out of the oven, add the meatballs, pasta, and red bell peppers.
Simmer for 10 additional minutes, or until the pasta is al dente. Top with fresh parsley or fresh basil as desired, and serve!
