"Family loves these meatballs. It's nice to have the mix on hand in fridge. Thanks for the recipe!!"
"this is NOT near an italian meatball recipe. Its all dry herbs, and nothing is correct. READ my meatball mix under "BATTUTO" I am Italian and I will help you make a "SPICY MEATBALL" mangia mangia"
"this recipe is soo wrong, it should not be followed. It is NOT italian or real at all. She uses all dry herbs, WHY. No cook uses dry parsley, and garlic powder, and onion powder, and never bread crumbs, only real day old wet bread. She is NOT italian obviously, watch for MY recipe on meatballs"
