      Very tasty meatballs! I usually make my own recipe but every now and them I like to try something new. I followed the recipe as posted then threw the meatballs in a pot of sauce. The meatballs baked really well and I wouldn't do it any differently with this recipe. I also think these would make great little cocktail meatballs since they are so flavorful. Thanks for posting, we will definitely try this again!

      Very good and easy recipe. I skipped the wine and tomato paste (used the sauce I was using for spaghetti. I also used plain bread crumbs and added extra Italian seasonings. Very tasty.

      very good recipe, put a piece of provolone cheese inside each meatball and it'll be perfect
