Yes, Virginia, there will be Little Meatball Soup

For those who knew my mom, always looked forward to her Little Meatball Soup at any and every holiday meal.  Yes, after the Antipasto, before the Stuffed Shells or homemade Manicotti, and then followed by the Turkey or the Roast Beef, or the Ham.  And way before the many desserts.  But, there was something special about that soup.

Perhaps it was the painstaking rolling of all those little meatballs.  Perhaps it was the comfort that only soup can bring.  Or perhaps it was just my mother's love that she put into everything she made.  

The soup isn't quite the same without mom, but it's made with as much love as I can roll into each and every meatball.
