This Italian Meatball Soup with Tomatoes, Pesto and Parmesan is a great hearty comfort food dinner for cool nights. Juicy meatballs served up in a thick, pesto-kissed tomato soup - all made in one pot!
Prepare the meatballs. In a large bowl, add ground meat, eggs, garlic, parmesan, basil and salt. Using your hands, thoroughly mix all the ingredients until combined and well distributed.
Form meatballs the size of one tablespoon. You should get about 20 meatballs. To avoid the mixture to be too sticky, keep your hands wet when shaping the meatballs.
You can use ground beef or turkey for the meatballs.
You can also add small pasta to the soup. If you do, add 1 cup to the pot 10 minutes (more or less according to package direction) before the soup finishes to cook.
This soup is even better the next day.
