These Spanish style meatballs with tomato sauce are fabulous....can't remember where I got this recipe.

Great recipe, thanks for posting! I used ground pork because that's what I had defrosted and instead of fresh tomatoes I used one tin of diced tomatoes with liquid. Alternatively, I could have used one tin of Spanish style tomato sauce and substituted the cilantro for the rosemary.
I served it over white rice with some steamed vegetables on the side. My family loved it!

Thanks again!
