MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2011

"Outstanding! I made them for a Christmas Eve party and everyone loved them! My college-aged nephews couldn't get enough of them. I only had 2 meatballs leftover, I will put this recipe in my recipe box as a keeper!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2011

"These were a hit at our staff Christmas party. Next time, though, I will brown the meatballs. That brings out the flavor as well as makes them prettier. Pretty is what it is all about, no?"
