This was a gppd base to start with. I did make several changes such as I added a small amount of chopped onion and sauted that with the celery in some butter. Then I added the garlic (5 cloves...we love garlic) and the sliced carrots and cooked for about 1 minute. To that I added 2 cans of beef broth and enough water to come to 2 quarts. Then the tomato sauce along with a can of diced tomatoes, the beef bouillon cubes, the recommended spices which I also added 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, dash of cayenne pepper, dash of tabasco sauce and a little Worcestershire sauce. Added the meatballs after about 5 minutes. I used rigatoni noodles as I didn't have any macaroni on hand and added a can of corn (drained) when these were added along with a squirt of ketchup for the sweetness. Everyone in my household loved this soup. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add additional carrots, maybe add some frozen green beans and/or diced zucchini for some extra veggies.
