Meatball & Vegetable Kabobs
6 ounce can tomato paste with Italian seasonings (1/3 cup)
teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
1-inch refrigerated or frozen Italian-style meatballs,* thawed
large cherry tomatoes
Nonstick cooking spray
metal or bamboo skewers
- Preheat indoor electric grill or broiler. In a medium bowl combine tomato paste, the water, and Italian seasoning to make a thick sauce. Add meatballs to sauce, stirring to coat; set aside.
- Using a vegetable peeler, cut four evenly spaced strips from zucchini. Cut zucchini into 1-inch cubes.
- On skewers, alternately thread meatballs and zucchini; thread a tomato onto each end. Lightly coat kabobs with nonstick cooking spray. Grill or broil (3 to 4 inches from heat) for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until meatballs are heated through and vegetables are crisp-tender. Brush remaining sauce on kabobs during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
