The meatball soup recipes use a half-recipe of meatballs. Cool leftover meatballs. Place meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Freeze about 30 minutes or until firm. Transfer meatballs to resealable freezer bags or freezer containers. Seal and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.

For Easy Cleanup:

Line your roasting pan with foil for easy cleanup. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Do not lift or transport foil with food inside; dispose after.
