Meatless Meatball Zucchini Soup

I usually go to the store with a list but the other day I thought with only needing two things I wouldn’t need one. I should have known better because it’s at those times when I spend too much or impulse buy the most and that is exactly what happened.

I walked out with two bags of groceries and a great thought of making a quick tortellini soup for dinner.

I sautéed my onion, garlic and herbs then add crushed tomatoes, salt/pepper and thought why not add my frozen shredded zucchini from summer. While I waited with anticipation for some good tortellini soup, I thought how smart it was that I found already made cheese tortellini for my soup and how dinner was so quick and easy. I think my arm almost broke from patting myself on the back.

Then it happened, I went at the last minute to add my cheese tortellini and found to my horror it was cheese and sausage, my veggie heart sank. I knew I had to pull it together so I broke up lasagna noodles (that is all I had in a large quantity) and got out some already made up frozen meatless meatballs.

I found that this soup was fast and easy, not planned out but sometimes those are the best. I still enjoyed my soup and thought why not share a quick easy soup with you.

Meatless Meatball Zucchini Soup:

4 cups of vegetable broth

1 90 ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 tablespoon of Olive Oil

1 small diced white onion

4-5 cloves of garlic diced

2 cups of shredded zucchini (I used frozen)

Per taste oregano, parsley, basil, salt and pepper

8-10 meatless meatballs

4-6 lasagna noodles broken up into large pieces

Fresh parmesan for on top

In a large pan on medium to high heat add olive oil then onion and garlic, sauté until almost translucent. Add herbs sauté a few minutes more then add zucchini and tomatoes. Turn down to a low simmer for about 15 minutes. Add broken lasagna noodles and meatless meatballs, turn up to a medium heat and simmer for about 15-20 more minutes or until noodles and meatless meatballs are done.

Serve in bowls with fresh shredded parmesan
