1
(16-oz.) pkg. frozen cooked Italian meatballs, thawed
1
cup frozen pearl onions
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
(14.5-oz.) cans diced tomatoes with Italian-style herbs, undrained
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons water
2 1/2
cups frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry, thawed, drained
1
oz. (1/4 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1 In 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker, combine meatballs, onions, salt and tomatoes; mix well.
  • 2 Cover; cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours.
  • 3 About 20 minutes before serving, in small bowl, blend flour and water until smooth. Stir flour mixture into stew. Stir in bell pepper and onion stir-fry. Increase heat setting to high; cover and cook an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until stew has thickened and bell peppers are thoroughly heated. Sprinkle individual servings with cheese.

Expert Tips

Pearl onions are mild-flavored onions just 1/2-inch in diameter. They are a common addition to stew.

Prepare your favorite homemade meatballs to use in this stew using 1 1/4 pounds of ground meat.

Try this stew over pasta—penne or ziti work great. Serve it with a loaf of crusty French bread.
