I just made this stew and it was pretty tasty. I really enjoyed the flavor of the stew base itself. I used ground turkey breast instead of sirloin for the meatballs and found that the amount of parsley called for completely overpowered them. I will be making this again but I will definately use less parsley. All together this is an excellent recipe.
this "stew" was just ok, it was more like a soup than a stew and I'm sorry to say , lacked flavour. But the meatballs were very good, I might make it again in a pinch, but I would not add the macaroni, instead i would make it up to that point with a little red pepper flakes added for some kick and would serve it over spaghetti. I do need to say that there is no way this would feed 10 people, I made half a recipe and half would only feed 3 maybe four at the most, so the nutritional facts are definately off. Definately nice meatballs!
This turned out really good. I had some meatballs I had purchased and in a hurry to make dinner. Had everything else on hand. I did add some veges, carrots, celery, zuccini because I needed to use them up. I served a nice crusty bread with it so we could sop up the broth. It is one that I will fix again.
