Winter may officially start in December and end in March but in Minnesota, the weather starts to turn cold in November and continues right through April. Some have called this place Icebox USA and there are days when it is an apt description. That is why we are big on comfort food and there are few things more comforting and warm than this Meatball Noodle Soup.
Tender meatballs, hearty kale, smooth, firm, and delicious No Yolks® noodles make this one-pot Meatball Noodle Soup something to look forward to especially after shoveling snow on the driveway. No Yolks® noodles are cholesterol free and always cook up right. It is a brand I trust for all my noodle recipes.
The noodles come in a variety of noodle cuts – Broad, Extra Broad, Fine, Kluski and Dumplings. They’re even available in Whole Grain. I can’t wait to give the different varieties a try and I hope you will to.
For this recipe, I used No Yolks® Extra Broad Noodles to soak up the delicious clear broth. I cooked it for half the time before adding it to the soup to finish the cooking. It came out perfect! They were smooth, firm, delicious, comforting, and warm. The soup was really yummy and the family loved it!
