'As the busy parents of two boys, my husband and I are always on the lookout for quick meals,' writes Linda de Beaudrap of Calgary, Alberta. 'You don't have to thaw the frozen meatballs for this satisfying soup, so you can have it on the table in minutes.'
I've seen sausage-like brochettes in North African restaurants in the past, but I'd never attemped to make them. I like that it's essentially like making a hybrid meatball and sausage, but with no need for stuffing or casing--and more immediate results. The spice combination and the herbs were also intriguing: nutmeg, paprika, cinnamon and cumin.
