Side or salad w/ Grandma's Spaghetti & meatballs?

ennyl | Feb 18, 200710:13 AM     12

Hi all,

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:
boston lettuce
romaine lettuce
a red bell pepper
snap peas
onions
scallions
sweet potatoes
celery&carrots
frozen peas, frozen chopped spinach, frozen sweet corn
parsley
walnuts, pecans, other nuts
dried cherries, cranberries
assorted vinegars & oils

thanks!
