Spaghetti and Meatballs Soup

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a month! I’ve been so distracted with house stuff that the idea of writing a recipe post seemed so small and insignificant in comparison. Well now that I’m over that, I’m sharing, darn it! This was so easy to make and so tasty. I’m a soup fiend, as it is, and any dish that can be remade swimming in broth, I’m a fan of. Besides, it’s way easier to dip your garlic bread in, yeah!

Spaghetti and Meatballs Soup

Yes yes yes, I know it’s not spaghetti! The reason is, spaghetti noodles will just fall apart in a soup, you really a thick sturdy noodle. Especially if you’re into leftovers like I am. I probably should have just named this pasta and meatballs. But spaghetti and meatballs sounds so much better! Picking the right pasta for a soup is critical! I really like cellentani. It’s big and thick so it maintains it’s form even after a day or two. There is nothing more depressing than dissolved pasta in soup! Yuck!

Now when it comes to meatballs you can make your own or use the frozen store bought ones. I’ve tried both ways and they both come out great! It just depends on how much time and energy you have to work with. On a week night, you know I’m going for the easy frozen ones too.

About Malia

Hi There! My name is Malia. I love to cook, garden, fish, and live in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. Come join in my silly adventures as I tromp through the garden, cook up a storm, and try to live every day to its fullest!


  1. This looks delicious! Perfect cold-weather comfort in a bowl 🙂 I always make my own meatballs (and have some stashed in the freezer) so we are ready to go for this soup!

  2. ooh I can’t wait to try this out! Such a great meal idea! It sounds like freezing it without the pasta would work really great as well!

  3. That looks like a delicious soup! I haven’t made meatballs in a bit, I should set aside a day to make a ton and freeze some too!
