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!

This dish had great flavor and I added just a little bit of smoked spanish style paprika to my meatball mixture. My ground beef was a little too lean and next time I will add an egg to the meatball mixture to help them stay together. The sauce was very chunky and I used red instead of white wine. Thanks for the recipe.
