      This recipe was very easy and very tasty. My kids helped to make it, and thought that it was excellent good when they dipped it into spaghetti sauce. I used an ice cream scooper to make the balls with, which was perfect size. I will make this recipe again.

      Wonderful flavor! Didn't add the 1/2 Tbsp. of pepper as listed, decreased the amt. to 1/2 tsp. Baseball size was too large for us so shaped ours more like golfball size. Next time will serve with warmed marinara as a dipping sauce. Great recipe, Thank You.
