For the meatballs:
Pulse oats in mini food processor. Mix with 3 tablespoons water or milk into a medium bowl. Mash to a paste with a spatula. Add the beef, sausage, egg, basil, salt and pepper. Blend the mixture thoroughly with your hands or a flexible spatula. Form the mixture into 10 meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet until ready to use.
For the hearty meatball stew:
Dredge the meatballs with the flour, patting off excess . Heat a large heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute.
Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Drop the meatballs into the skillet, spaced apart. Cook until the bottoms are set and brown, about 2 minutes. Using a flexible thin spatula, turn each meatball onto an uncooked side and cook until the bottoms are set and brown, about 2 minutes longer. Turn and cook a third side, until set and brown, about another 2 minutes, so the meatballs are browned and set all over. Transfer the meatballs to a large plate.
Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, peppers, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook until soft, 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and the remaining salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes, beans, tomatoes, red pepper flakes broth and 1 tablespoon tomato paste. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and cook until the potatoes are tender and the meatballs are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
Can substitue zuchinni for green beans. To lighten the meatballs use ground turkey and turkey sausage.
