I made these for Pick a Chef. September 2007. I used DianeNJ's My Italian Meatballs for the meatballs and knowing that we like strong Italian flavours I upped the garlic and herbs considerably. I used a large handful of fresh basil leaves and was pleased that I did becuase the flavour came though nicely and I used fresh oregano too instead of dried. This made a substantial meal that we liked a lot. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 4 stars for a nice weekday meal. Thanks!
