They already have a starch with the rice and don't need anything else heavy, so perhaps two vegetable sides: In the midwest I've seen them served awash in a simple, non-Italian tomato sauce and with succotash (peas, diced carrots and lima beans), and stewed greens (spinach, kale or poke salad).

That's what I was thinking. (the under lined part) Your idea sounds good. I'll add them to next months menu.

Thanks everybody!!!

I agree about the starch thing, but they just taste sooo good w/the garlicky tomato sauce, meatballs and mashed potatoes. Is that a starch faux pas? Maybe, but it's awfully good!!

cabbage and tomato, stir fried... Nice side for the meatballs.
Get the oil hot, stir fry the cabbage first, add the tomato for the last minute.
Season with basil, salt, pepper and a touch of soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.

I'll take'em any way I can get'em. I am craving cabbage, though. Will have to add some kraut, too.
