Thank you so much for posting this recipe, it is wonderful! I replaced the parsley with chopped green onions, as it is what I had on hand. The meatballs were extremely flavorful. Be sure to salt them generously. The glaze was also delicious. I will be adding this to my regular rotation. Thank you Carmen!
