It was good but if you making double just use 1 can tomato sauce.

Wow is this ever a great soup! Made this yesterday and everyone absolutely loved it. My only suggestion is that you need to make double. I bet you still won't have leftovers if you do.

Very satisfying meal. The broth is missing something- maybe a little tang or spice(?) Will definitely make it again, but would doctor it up a bit. The meatballs are perfect.
