I am so excited to bring you this awesome and easy Meatball Soup recipe today!

First, you know I’m a soup fiend. It’s what I always fall back on every time I need something quick, hearty and comforting in the cold weather months. Second, this meatball soup!! It’s so simple and quick and you can keep the ingredients on hand for a super-fast yet oh-so-delicious meal. Just grab a loaf of fresh bread on your way home from the store, it’s soo good with warm, crusty bread on the side.

And third – but most importantly – the recipe comes from Amy Flanigan and her new cookbook, Good Fast Eats! I’ve mentioned Amy a few times over the years and chances are this isn’t the last mention she’ll get. I’ve “known” her through our blog for years and she’s just good people.

Amy’s blog (BellyFull.net) is chock full of, well…good fast eats! So it’s no surprise that her fabulous new cookbook is filled with more of the same. It’s one of those cookbooks you’ll keep on your kitchen counter and use again and again.

What’s so great about Good Fast Eats?

Well, for starters, there’s a chapter dedicated to chicken, pork, beef, seafood, meatless, soups, and desserts. And most of those recipes can be made in just 25-30 minutes!

Like this easy Meatball Soup, for example.

My personal favorite part of the book is the very beginning, where she gives tips “to get food on the table without tears or needing Xanax”. I laughed out loud when I read that! It’s SO AMY and I just love that I can pick up her fantastic cookbook and feel like I’m hanging out with my beautiful friend. She also provides a thorough list of ingredients you can stock up on so you can make all of the recipes any old time!

Good Fast Eats is also perfect for just about everyone. I’d recommend it for busy working people who want good food fast or for new cooks just getting their feet wet but still want solid recipes to rely on. It would be a great stocking stuffer or a fun surprise for a friend. Or pick one up for yourself!

It was so tough to decide which recipe to make first. I spent over an hour just flipping through the pages, reading each recipe and drooling over her gorgeous photos. I finally handed it to my 10-year-old who chose the Meatball Soup.

She is one smart kid.

This Meatball Soup comes together in one flat hot minute. Okay, more than a minute, but once you chop an onion, you’re pretty much on autopilot. I picked up some high-quality frozen meatballs and a bag of spinach and the rest was a breeze. It’s now on my go-to list for easy, delicious meals that I’ll make again and again.
