      This is very tasty! I enjoyed the flavor of the peppers in the sauce. It was a little time consuming but all enjoyed. I served this over whole wheat spaghetti with salads and garlic bread. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue

      very good I only made the meatballs and since I have a huge garden crop of jalapenos I added that in also to the mixture and used green onion in place of the chives, I increased the Parmesan cheese to 1/4 cup, we enjoyed these, thanks for sharing bluemoon!
