Low Carb Italian Wedding Soup (Crock Pot)

Submitted by: SLMADDEN72

Introduction

Make the meatballs several days in advance and freeze them. I prefer fresh basil, parsley, garlic, and fresh ground pepper for a more intense flavor. I also use sea salt (salt can be adjusted for taste and sodium restrictions). Make the meatballs several days in advance and freeze them.
