I gave this 5 stars because my family loved it when I made it last night (I did make a few changes though mostly because I already had an idea for a soup I wanted to make and I was just looking for something similar to see what seasonings were used). Things I did different were that I added an 11.5 oz can of V8 juice, eliminated the potatoes and cabbage and added 3 stalks of celery, a diced up zucchini and about a cup of fresh green beans. I also added a can of cannellini beans and a can of mushrooms. I didn't use the whole peppercorns but used fresh ground black pepper, used dried parsley rather than fresh, and didn't use marjoram or celery seed since I didn't have them. I also added garlic powder and basil. To the meatballs I added Italian seasoning because I was concerned they wouldn't have enough flavor compared to the rest of the soup.
This is a very good soup, and you can use whatever veggies you like or have on hand, and I think it would probably turn out good with anything you add.
I loved the fact that you cook the meatballs right in the soup making for a one-pot dinner. However, I had a lot of grease, so I think next time I'll make the soup a day ahead of time and then remove the harden grease before reheating the next day. I just had it for lunch, and it's even better the next day!
