Meatballs: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together, using the spices and cheese to taste. Form into small balls. Bake about 30 minutes, until the meatballs have browned but are still soft. Remove from oven and drain on paper towel.
Soup: Place all of the ingredients into the Crock-Pot with meatballs. Cook for several hours (all day). Serve with cheese.
