  • 1 pound small red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ cup grated onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 12 ounces 90% lean ground beef
  • 8 ounces green beans, trimmed
  • ¼ cup heart healthy pasta sauce, such as Prego® Heart Smart
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely snipped fresh basil


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place potatoes in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons of the oil and sprinkle with 2 of the garlic cloves, the rosemary, ½ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper; toss to coat. Roast 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place oats in a food processor. Cover and process to a coarse powder. In a large bowl combine oat powder, egg white, onion, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, 1 of the garlic cloves, ¼ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper. Add ground beef; mix well. Using ¼ cup mixture for each, shape into eight meatballs.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the remaining 2 teaspoon oil, 1 clove garlic and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Add green beans, toss to coat.
  4. Push potatoes to one end of baking pan. Arrange meatballs in other end and mound beans in center of pan.
  5. Roast 20 to 25 minutes more or until meatballs are done (160°F) and vegetables are tender, rotating pan after 10 minutes and spooning pasta sauce over meatballs the last 2 to 3 minutes of roasting.
  6. Sprinkle meatballs with cheese and basil. If desired, serve with additional pasta sauce.
