These spinach meatballs are great. I recommend topping them with a bit of alfredo sauce.

Excellent. I used fresh baby spinach, quickly sauteed with garlic, drained on paper towels and roughly chopped. I used ground beef instead of turkey, and 1/4 c. ketchup in place of the milk. I browned them in a skillet and finished in a 400 oven for about 15 minutes. The result was a moist, tender meatball bursting with flavor. Went perfectly with crispy potatoes. Everyone loved these. Winner!!
