This is an oven-baked stew, which makes it nice for a busy night when you can't be watching a pot boil. The meatballs are homemade so you end up with some mighty fine flavor. The ingredients for the stew are simple, but filling - just garbanzo beans, tomatoes, Italian green beans, and mushrooms. It's thick, rich, and delicious. What more could you want from stew?
