This is very versatile dish! I never make it the same way twice.

The meatballs can be made spicy and not the vegetables. Or made with turkey or pork rather than chicken if you wish.

In the stir fry, use any combination of vegetables that you crave.

Give the garnish your own special touch!

I encourage you to be creative and read the entire recipe before shopping to make it!!

Enjoy!
