I think everyone agrees that we needs a bowl of warm soup on a cold winter night? Right?

Well, here you go! Warm soup on a cold night AND it’s quick and easy to make too!


Let’s talk about the meatballs. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t find homemade meatballs difficult to make AT ALL! In fact I love making meatballs and if you’re looking for a great, easy recipe well here ya go: Homemade Baked Meatballs  However, with that being said, sometimes I just don’t have the time.  So, yes (sigh of disappointment in my self as I accept that fact that I am human and do work a full-time job), I used a bag of frozen, store bought meatballs for this recipe and be sure to note you’ll want to buy the mini meatballs, not the dinner sized.

As far as the veggies go, I used my standard, go-to soup veggies; onions, carrots and celery.

I really wanted to make this a true one pot meal, so I chose a small noodle that would cook up easily in the Instant Pot.  I chose ditalini pasta, but you can use any small pasta.
