Turkey meatball soup is a bowl of comfort in a soup. It’s been cold and rainy here. There is nothing better than cooking a big pot of soup to warm you up.

When I was helping the family out of town. I had made a recipe for soup with my daughter. It was for Lentil soup with veggies. She asked me to make turkey meatballs for the soup. It was delicious. I haven’t used turkey meatballs in soup before that. But, since having that soup I decided to switch up my normal chicken vegetable soup to a homemade turkey meatball noodle soup.
Turkey Meatball Soup
I decided to keep the turkey meatballs out of the soup, just until serving the soup. If you have picky kids you can serve them the soup with turkey meatballs on the side or add them to the soup and just skip dishing them up what they don’t like.
We just add the turkey meatballs into our soup bowls just prior to adding the soup into the bowl. But, you definitely can add them into the pot the last 15-20 minutes for even more flavor.

There are three easy steps to this Turkey Meatball Soup recipe which makes it one of my many favorites go-to easy recipes.
How to make Turkey Meatball Soup
Saute the Vegetables
First, saute your veggies in a non-stick 5-quart skillet. This skillet is deep and has a glass lid. Be sure to use a skillet or pot you can cover with a lid.
Make the Turkey Meatballs
Second, make the turkey meatballs by first prepping the ingredients in a bowl. Then in a separate skillet slowly cook them until browned and centers are fully cooked. Set to the side. Add to soup 15-20 minutes prior to serving or in each bowl individually.
Make the noodles
Then cook your noodles for your soup per package directions for al dente. Drain, rinse in cold water and set to the side. Ladle into the soup when serving. This way your noodles don’t soak up all the broth and don’t get overcooked.
Ladle the soup into a bowl, add the turkey meatballs (if not in the soup already) and scoop a spoonful of noodles into the soup. Stir and enjoy!
