Inspired by the recent Weight Watchers discussion, I'd like to serve a vegetable side with classic spaghetti and meatballs to balance the meal. I have trouble imagining veggie sides that go well with a hearty pasta dish--ideas?
Here's what's in my fridge/cupboard:
a red bell pepper
frozen peas, frozen chopped spinach, frozen sweet corn
walnuts, pecans, other nuts
dried cherries, cranberries
assorted vinegars & oils
