Great classic, base soup. Warning: You'll need at least an 8 qt. pot. Did not have jar salsa so I made my own (2 chopped tomatoes, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 chopped onion, 2T olive oil, 1/4 c lemon juice, 3T diced/canned green chilis, S&P). Used 3, 32 oz. containers of broth (1 beef, 1 chicken, 1 veg). Also increasedthe oregano and and basil to 1T (you can barely taste them if you don't). Baked very tiny meatballs (no larger than 1" in diameter--trick using collander doesn't really save any time over making by hand) in 350 oven for 25 mins. Sauteed onion with 1 cup carrots in a little olive oil before adding rest of soup ingredients. As suggested, when simmering was reached, I dropped the cooked meatballs in and simmered 40 mins more. Perfecto!
