Creamy potatoes, crunchy zucchini and tangy tomatoes combine really well to make a dense, delicious soup. And carbohydrate-rich potatoes convert any dish into a meal, all by itself. This soup too, can make a quick dinner if you are not in the mood for a proper meal. Cheese balls add a nice surprise to every spoonful. This also makes a wonderful appetizer to a formal dinner. Garnish with sprig of parsley to give the perfect finishing to this tangy, crunchy soup.
