Step 1Combine Ground Beef, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup cheese, egg whites, water, 1 clove garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 12 two-inch meatballs. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place meatballs in skillet; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on all sides.
Step 2Add remaining 2 cloves garlic, tomatoes and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes and until potatoes are tender. Uncover; continue simmering about 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
Cooking Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
Step 3Sprinkle meatballs with cheese, if desired, before serving.
