This makes a pretty, colorful meal. For a different taste, try serving a stir-fry over baked or mashed potatoes—that's how I sometimes serve this dish.— Nan Radabaugh, Perrysburg, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 21, 2009

This is one of our favorite recipes! I don't do the meatballs but just crumbled ground beef. It has such an interesting mixture of flavors and is a great way to sneak in spinach.
