Pumpkin Angel Food Cake

Found this on SparkPeople and it is a WW recipe. Haven't tried it yet but will as soon as I get the ingredients.

1 box angel food cake mix
1 15oz pumpkin
2 TBSP pumpkin pie spice
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam.
Mix spice with pumpkin, add water, stir and add cake mix.
Stir vigorously until well mixed.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 30 minutes.
Cool and cut into 16 squares
Cool whip may be added to top each square but it has not been figured into the calories or points value.

Italian Meatball Veggie Soup

2 cans Swanson (fat free/50% sodium) beef broth
1 large can tomato sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 chopped onion
2 cups chopped cabbage
1 10oz bag frozen veggies
1 lb. lean ground beef (94/6)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp basil
2 tsp oregano
1 egg
4 cups water

Combine ground beef, 1/2 tsp garlic, Parmesan cheese, egg, basil and oregano in a bowl. Form into small balls about the size of nickels. Spray skillet with Pam and brown on all sides.

While browning meatballs put remaining ingredients into large soup pot. Add meatballs when finished browning.

Simmer for 1-2 hours (until cabbage is tender). Makes approximately 30 one cup servings.

I will probably add some macaroni to the soup but the nutritional info and WW points don't reflect that. It is really good without the pasta.
