Meatball Noodle Soup

Kinda not the right time of year for this one, but my family is thrilled because it's a favorite.

A friend of mine told me today that I "cheat" because I occasionally use things like frozen meatballs and bouillon cubes. LOL Hey, I love cooking with 100% fresh and pure ingredients... but it's not always going to happen. I live in the real world where what I eat is important but not the most important thing. I'm a full-time student, a full-time wife, and a full-time mother.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes
Servings: 12 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cups carrots, chopped (however you like; I dice mine)

  • 2 cups celery, chopped

  • 2 cups onion, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

  • 12 cups beef stock (or 12 beef bouillon cubes in 12 cups of water)

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 package frozen homestyle egg noodles

  • 2 lb package frozen meatballs

  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes


Directions

Sauté veggies in oil until they begin to soften.

Add beef stock and seasonings. Bring to a boil and keep at a low boil for 10 minutes or so.

Add noodles and return to a boil. Boil 20 minutes or until noodles are done.

Add meatballs and tomatoes. Return to a boil and simmer until meatballs are heated through.
