This is a variation to Porcupine meatballs
which is a favorite in our home.

1 cup half-and-half
1 (10-3/4 oz) can condensed tomato soup
1 (14.05 oz) can diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic
Parsley to garnish

Heat oven to 350F.  Spray 2-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spary.
In medium bowl combine ground beef, onion, salt and pepper; mix well.
Shape mixture into meatballs; place in sprayed casserole dish.

In medium bowl combine all remaining ingredients except parsley; mix well.
Pour over meatballs.  Cover tightly with foil.

Bake at 350F for 1-1/2 hours or until rice is tender.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
