Meatball Stuffed Tomato

Lynn Socko


Another stuffed tomato idea. This is a great way to use leftover meatballs.

This is also a great low carb dish.
A late thought, but you could leave out the butter and/or olive oil in the sauce and cook the veggies in a little low sodium chicken broth. Hence making it even lighter!
