  • Add in the can of Italian Seasoning Tomatoes (this is a easier way to get the italian tangy taste to the soup, you could use raw chopped tomatoes and add in some minced garlic, herbs and italian seasoning)

Bring it all together:

  • After the bullion is done, add potatoes into bullion and start boiling
  • When potatoes have started boiling, with a teaspoon make meatballs and add into the hot boiling bullion (it is important to have the bullion hot, or your meatballs will fall apart)
