Zucchetti and Meatball Soup: A creamy tomato soup loaded with meatballs and "zucchetti" noodles, and topped with fresh basil. You'll never look at spaghetti and meatballs the same way again.

Home Sweet Homestead: Zucchetti and Meatball Soup

Spaghetti and meatballs with a twist... I turned it into a soup! And not just any old soup either, Creamy tomato soup is transformed into something special with the addition of tender turkey meatballs, and zucchetti (spiralized zucchini noodles). Remember enjoying spaghetti and meatballs as a child? Well now you can get that same comforting feeling, with this grown-up version.

Home Sweet Homestead: Low FODMAP Spaghetti and Meatball Soup

It's time for another monthly installment of #SoupSaturdaySwappers, and I can't wait to share this delicious soup recipe with you. This month's theme is meatballs, chosen by Sneha of Sneha's Recipe. So I took everyone’s favorite childhood food memory, and turned it into the coziest soup ever.

I made it low FODMAP as well. I'm having lots of fun with my new "normal" as I like to call it. A low FODMAP diet may seem restrictive at first, but once you start experimenting and realize that all you have to do is become a little more creative with your recipes, it doesn't seem so strict after all.

Zucchetti and Meatball Soup


1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup green onion, green part only, diced
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

3 - 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
1 - 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
3 cups vegetable broth (made with green onion tops and no garlic)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
2 small-medium zucchini, spiralized
1/4 cup basil leaves, chiffonade


FOR THE MEATBALLS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Don't overmix or the meatballs will turn out tough.
Roll into meatballs about the size of golf balls.
Place meatballs on a greased baking sheet, and bake for 25 - 30 minutes, or until cooked through.

In a large stockpot whisk together the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, oregano, dried basil, and thyme. Bring to a boil.
Add the meatballs and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 7 minutes then add the spiralized zucchini. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes more, or until zucchini is cooked to your likeness.
Taste for seasonings and serve immediately, garnished with basil.
