This was pretty easy to make (especially if you use frozen meatballs) and the boys in my house loved it!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
3 cloves garlic
1 pound fully cooked meatballs, frozen or homemade
32 oz beef broth
28 oz diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups ditalini pasta or elbow macaroni or any small pasta you like
Parmesan for sprinkling
1 Add olive oil to a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, celery, and carrots and saute for 3 – 5 minutes. Add meatballs and garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
2 Add beef broth, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium low, stirring occasionally.
3 Add pasta and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until pasta is cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan.
