Turkey Meatball Stew

You can make this in the crockpot too!

This easy peazy recipe for Meatball stew can be made for your family in a flash! Using fresh ground turkey or chicken for the meatball mixture I then potatoes and green beans to mine but you can add any veggies your family might enjoy. I cooked my veggies separately slightly to allow for quicker turnover.  The meatballs will cook quickly too and once in sauce so tender and tasty.

A Hearty Meal that can be spiced up if you like by adding some red pepper too!

1 lb. ground turkey or ground chicken
3/4 cup garlic /herb breadcrumbs or seasoned breadcrumbs
3/4 cup pecorino romano cheese
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 to 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 lb. green beans broken in pieces
4 red skinned potatoes cubed
2- large cans crushed tomatoes
fresh or dried basil
1 clove minced garlic
olive oil

Mix the first seven ingredients together.  Shape into large meatballs.  Bake in oven at 400 degrees until slightly browned.

In a separate pot place green beans and potatoes with a slight amount of salt.  Bring to a boil and cooked approx. 5 minutes.  Drain.

Place about 4 T. oil in a large Dutch oven pot add minced garlic.  Saute for a few minutes on low careful not to burn.  Add tomatoes and basil.  Add meatballs, green beans and potatoes.  Simmer slowly for approximately 1 hour.  Yummy!
