    I was given this recipe by a former coworker who was Armenian. Whenever I bring the leftovers to work for lunch, everyone is popping into the breakroom to see what smells so delicious!

      I had no idea cumin would make this meal so good! Super easy and super yummy! Served this over pasta and was very pleasantly surprised. Great recipe!

      I really enjoyed these little "footballs!" hehe. The sauce was good, though I felt it was missing something...maybe a little more seasoning? I used fresh garlic and parsley. The fresh cilantro sprinkled on top was great...I love the little burst of flavor fresh herbs give a dish. I will definately make these again, and will play with the sauce a little...I'm thinking maybe a hint of cloves and oregano....Thanks for the recipe, Michelle!

      This recipe is a winner! It was easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand - what more could you ask? I did add one more can of tomato sauce so I could serve it over pasta with plenty of sauce, and I minced a big, fat clove of garlic into it instead of using garlic powder, but just 'cause I like fresh garlic so much. I served it over pasta with parmesan sprinkled on top - we loved it! I'll make this over and over!
