My guests really like this recipe and want to know why it's so different from other meatball dishes they've had. I tell them it's the spices I use. I usually serve this as a main dish for lunch. I created this recipe myself "from scratch".

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2010

I made this for my family and was surprised cause even my PICKY son ate 2 servings! I doubled the recipe, and used only beef since I have beef men in my house, used an egg in place of the water, I did not have the Marjoram so I used basil and upped the flour to 3/4 cup. The sauce was not thick enough for my liking, without it. I served it on mini Penne pasta. I definitely will make this again. But I will have to try the Marjoram soon!!
