Make meatballs. Mix all ingredients except butter, mix lightly and shape into 24 meatballs. In 5 quart Dutch oven, heat butter, saute meatballs (single layer at a time) until browned. Drain off fat and set meatballs aside. In same pan combine 2 cups water, broth, tomatoes, onion soup mix, carrots, celery, parsley, pepper, basil, oregano and bay leaf and bring to boiling.
