Recipe: White Bean and Meatball Soup

This heart and filling soup is perfect for a chilly day. In the future I might actually add half the amount of meatballs as it was VERY meatball-y or rolling them smaller might help instead. Either way you can replace white beans with any other beans you have on hand and it probably wouldn’t hurt either.
