A relatively quick and easy stew which will serve many (or make many servings for the freezer). This is a great way to get reluctant kids and husbands to eat some veggies, and because you bake the meatballs, it cuts out on a lot of the fat normally found in pan-fried meatballs. Feel free to vary the ingredients (adding more or less of something as you like). This can be served as a lunch/light dinner, or as a starter for a meal. I serve this with grated parmesan cheese on top, and crusty bread for dipping.
