"The only thing I would change is beef to ground turkey and crush red peppers and 1/4 cup of Italian dressing."

"Not enough sauce. I will use another half or full can of tomatoes next time. The meatballs were too herb-y for me, although my friend loved them; I'd like to try it with cubed chicken instead. Otherwise the flavor of the vegetables and rice was delicious!"

"Make sure when you chop the mushrooms, pepper and onion that it is chopped REALLY small. Otherwise the meatballs will fall apart while cooking. The meatballs tasted great but the recipe needs something more. There was not enough sauce, my family thought. Otherwise it is a nice easy meal with everything in it."
