I used fresh mint, too, and I agree that the taste is so unique but has just enough delicateness to it that you don't want to drown it in a sauce. Pasta or rice alongside it with it's own flavoring or sauce and a vegetable is the perfect way to serve them.

I loved this recipe! It was easy to prepare and cooks quickly. I made spaghetti with it, but I put the meatballs on the side so as not to override the mint taste with the sauce. Delicious!!Also, I used fresh mint leaves, which probably increased the flavor = )
