What's Cooking? Looney Meatball Soup

As promised, here is the recipe for the awesome soup that uses those meatballs I shared last week!

Looney Meatball Soup

2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 zucchini, chopped
2 cups V-8 juice
4 cups beef broth
1/2 cup small pasta (we like the extra small shells)

1. Saute the vegetables for 5 minutes in olive oil in your soup pot.
2. Add the V-8 juice and beef broth and bring to a boil.
3. Let soup simmer on low until about an hour before you want to eat.  Then add meatballs.  (You may want to add them a bit sooner if they are frozen.)
4. When meatballs are heated through, turn up heat a bit and add pasta.  Cook until pasta is tender and serve.  (Small pasta gets done quickly!)
5. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and a loaf of Italian bread!  :)

Note:  This serves about 6 to 8 as written.  I double for my family and have some leftover for lunch the next day!  :)

I noticed that the shells in the picture look huge, so I wanted to mention that one of the children added the wrong box of pasta for me! :) No harm done, but I normally use the tiny little shells for the soup! :)
