Italian Meatball Soup

+1 Edgell Sliced Green Beans

You really get the best of both worlds with this recipe – tasty, flavoursome meatballs and a warming, vegie soup. Featuring Italian-inspired ingredients, we’ve thrown in some green beans to complement the other flavours. Soak up the soup with a nice slice of crusty bread and you’ll wish it was always cold enough to eat this type of food.

Tips

We used pre-prepared meatballs in this recipe. If they are too large, then divide them and re-roll into smaller balls before cooking.

Let's face it, We could all do with more vegies in our meals.

That’s why we started the Edgell +1 Project. We wanted to show just how easy it is to add one extra vegetable to your meals. We scour the web each month to find some of Australia’s favourite recipes, then head to the kitchen to show you how easy it is to add extra vegetables to your meals.
