I make Swedish meatballs every Christmas and thought I would try a new recipe for it. This was okay, much easier than mine, but my family still prefers mine! Thanks for sharing! MadeforZWT9

Yum. This was simple to make and very tasty. The meatballs were a little loose so had to be careful in turning them, but they came out very moist. Thanks Dee for sharing. Made for ZWT9.

Boy was this good Dienia. What a terrific meal we had. The meatballs and sauce were perfect served over fettuccia Riccia. The noodles worked great in this dish. I ground my spices fresh, for a lovely depth of flavor. This recipe was quick and easy to make. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. I thought that the flavor was subtle then the spices hit. It was awesome. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that made my dh go back for more. Will definitely make again.
