    Diana #2's Note:

    What an easy recipe, and only 4 ingredients. This was on the cover of the newest issue of Kraft's "What's Cooking" magazine. I did add minced garlic and some Italian seasoning....just couldn't help myself :) I baked the meatballs on a rack to eliminate excess fat. Two sauce options were given as serving suggestions. I have listed them in the instructions so that they will not interfere with the nutritional values of the meatballs. These are terrific for freezing, making future meals even faster.

      I made these meatballs to freeze for later. I really liked the basic recipe; for my taste, I would like some more spice or seasoning. I will definitely make these again, adding some oregano, sage, pepper, or even some lemon zest to spice them up a bit. Also, I didn't use any foil, just non-stick spray on the baking pan and they browned nicely and didn't stick. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper.
      Update Sept 2010: made this with 2 Tbsp tandoori sauce to replace some of the water and it worked out well.
