I like this lowfat version of meatballs much better than most traditional renditions. Although the meatballs taste great with the sauce, you can definitely mix and match. The meatballs would go great with a mustard sauce. And if you are feeling lazy, just buy a good lowfat marinara sauce.

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese - shredded
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs

3/4 cup water

Beef Meatballs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Shape mixture into medium sized meatballs. Place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Bake until done(15 minutes).

Marinara Sauce

Cook onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, and garlic in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Saute until tender (5 minutes). Add remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
