You may use minced garlic clove to the veggies, and omit the garlic in the chicken meatballs if you prefer. Garnish with more cheese (optional)
Optionally, you can cook penne pasta al dente, per package directions. Keep in a separate bowl, (do not add to soup) and add to each bowl of soup when serving.
