This was a good basic meal. I left out the broccoli and served it on the side so EVERYONE would eat it! We all enjoyed it. I got ALOT more than 4 servings (I did add more meatballs) and I would definitely make this again.

This is easy and very tasty and leftovers were good the next day too when reheated in the microwave with a Tbls or two of water added for extra moisture. I made this dish with the ingredients listed. Thanks Paintpuddles!

Outstanding!! Per my kids, they loved this recipe, for me it was a quick and easy meal. I liked that I had everything to make this meal. I used mixed veggies instead of the broccoli & peppers. My kids aren't too keen on peppers right now, but they really enjoyed this recipe. Thank you for a kid pleasing meal.
