These were very good Michelle S!! The sauce was very tasty, the cumin added a nice different taste than we're used to, made the whole recipe for supper last night, ate half of it and took the other half with us on a picnic today, they were just as good cold, the sauce was delicious cold, the spices had really come together!! Thanks for sharing.

A great quick n easy dinner...we served ours with creamy mashed spuds and veg. I skipped step 3, placing the unbrowned meatballs directly in simmering sauce mixture until cooked through. Reviewed for the camera-less chef game. :)
