The slow cooker makes it crazy-easy to prepare a deliciously satisfying weeknight meal for a family, even when you have to be at work all day. This soup is a perfect example. Meatballs and pasta in a rich, creamy broth seasoned with onions, garlic and Italian herbs are appealing to kids and adults alike.
You can make the meatballs the night before, if you like, and stash them in the fridge overnight. If you’re really pressed for time, use a bag of party-size Italian meatballs. Combine the meatballs with the broth and seasonings, and cook for eight hours. Thirty minutes before mealtime, just stir in the cream, pasta and Parmesan cheese.
