  • 1 beaten egg
  • ½ cup soft bread crumbs (about 2/3 of 1 slice)
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • teaspoon pepper
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 1 14-ounce can beef broth
  • 1 14 1/2-ounce can Italian-style stewed tomatoes (or fresh, chopped)
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 cup sliced leek or onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • 1 cup tiny star pasta
  • 1 cup green beans
  • Parmesan cheese, to serve


  • In a medium mixing bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan or Romano cheese, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape meat mixture tightly (so they don’t break apart while stewing) into 36 balls.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to a slow cooker, reserving the green beans and pasta. Add the meatballs. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
  • Just before serving, and with the cooker on WARM, add the green beans and pasta. Let sit for about 5 minutes with the lid on. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
