Meatball Tortellini Soup

The season of soup is upon us. There are many easy homemade soups that we love to have this

time of year and one of our favorites in Meatball Tortellini.

Growing up in an Italian-American home this soup was a staple in Joe and John's home.

Another name for this soup is Italian Wedding soup. According to Wikipedia this name comes from the Italian phrase "minestra maritata", meaning married soup. This is due to the flavors of the meat and vegetables combining like a marriage.

We hope you enjoy this video of Joe and John making Meatball Tortellini Soup and the twist John gives to it. The written recipe is below the video.
