I found this recipe when I wanted to make a simple meatball without a lot of preparation and chopping of stuff (I was in a hurry), but one with a lot of flavor. It's not bad! I used lean ground turkey instead and I did modify to what I had on hand (substituted Panko bread crumbs, and a few tablespoons water for the soft crumbs) and I did add a little worcestershire and ketchup simply because I was afraid the turkey would dry out. I baked in the oven (spray the foil to avoid sticking!) without turning and they were just fine. Then instead of making the tomato sauce, I used a 28 ounce jar of tomato basil pasta sauce because I didn't have enough diced tomatoes to make the sauce. At the end, I topped with both some mozzarella and parm. Served with penne and a green vegetable. Easy and quick . I do have to say that I was skeptical of baking the meatballs twice (even though the second time was in the sauce) because I didn't really see the reason for cooking them so long and I was afraid they would overcook, but they came out really tender. Now I know! lol
