    Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan, heat water, pasta sauce, bell pepper and mushrooms to boiling. Stir in pasta. Reduce heat; simmer about 15 minutes or until pasta is of desired doneness, stirring occasionally. Stir in meatballs; heat until hot. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Instead of boiling pasta in water, cook it in the sauce to save time. Homemade turkey meatballs add extra flavor.
  • This stew thickens as it stands because the pasta soaks up the liquid. If you like a thinner stew, add water to bring the stew to the consistency you want, and reheat before serving.
  • If fresh herbs are available, substitute 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme for the 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning.
