Clipped from a January 1998 issue of the Houston Chronicle, these baked meatballs are easy to make and kid-friendly. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles topped with the yummy gravy!

We enjoyed this dish. I used ground turkey and omitted the green pepper. I did not have jarred mushrooms, and sauteed fresh mushrooms instead with a lid to keep the juices. I made 1/2 a recipe of the meatballs but kept the sauce the same and we did not have a whole lot extra, so if you are inclined to up the sauce amount do not hesitate. I served over noodles.
