“I had some leftover cooked cabbage,along with some leftover cooked baby carrots that needed to be used up. And so I combined them with some frozen Italian Meatballs, along with a few other things and made what I think is a very good soup. For the Italian Salad Dressing mix, I used Italian Dressing Seasoning Dry Mix by BeachGirl. As with any of my recipes, please adjust the seasonings according to your own personal tastes.Submitted to (a.k.a. " ZAAR ") on October 9th.,2012.”
