      this was a very different dish for us. i have been making meatballs the same way forever, always use breadcrumbs and eggs, milk, etc. i didn't think these meatballs would even hold together- but they did, beautifully. for the sauce i added alot of fresh rosemary, parsley, thyme, basil during the last 15 minutes but i added dried oregano and a bay leaf at the beginning of the cooking time. my husband thought it was a meat sauce because of the dark color and rich flavor. i served this with thick spaghetti and it made 6 servings, just perfect for us. i will be making this again
