    Oolala's Note:

    Great! This is delicious and I can see why everyone wants the recipe. Had these at Geoff and Jane's seder this year. They taste like stuffed cabbage but in a meatball form. This recipe comes to me by way of Donna, Geoff and Jane's friend, who got it from Jane's Mom, Rae, who got it from her son in law, Geoff's Mom, Arline. Hope you got that because there will be a test later! So, in other words, 3 different women have now "perfected" it! Use matzo meal for Passover and bread crumbs otherwise, unless you like matzo meal. I had been bugging Donna for the recipe and just got it in the mail today! Can be served for dinner if you make larger meatballs. It would be good over rice.
