AMAZING!!! 20 STARS!<br/>I beyond love these!! I made them exactly as the recipe calls for and cooked them in the red gravy :) My best friend is Italian directly from the Tuscan Region, she said these are very similar to hers. I can't get enough of them!! Do yourself a favor people and make these!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe :)

I decided to fry/cook the meatballs on the stovetop first and let them brown on each side. Then I removed the meatballs and sautéed some chopped onions in the grease. Drained the excess grease and then simmered some canned spaghetti sauce before adding the meatballs. It was my first time making meatballs, and they turned out great!

These came out perfect. The best meatballs I have ever made, actually. I used 2Tbsp of Lawry's seasoned salt, and will probably opt for another brand or non-seasoned salt next time.

These literally do melt in your mouth. Great flavor with the parm. I had to add a bit more bread crumbs to get them to stick together but otherwise, this is a great recipe.

Very good! I discovered that I only had half the amount of parmesan, but I don't know that it mattered.

These were ok, but I didn't like the oregano taste so next time I'll leave it out. I really liked the idea of cooking the meatballs in the sauce. It definitely made the meatballs more tender and the sauce more tasty. I used ground turkey, but maybe next time I'll use a mixture of ground turkey and turkey sausage to get a little more flavor.

I have found a simple and tasty recipe, YES! I used ground buffalo and pork this time. Recipe makes enough little meatballs for two meals, so I froze 1/2 mixture for another day. 1/2 recipe fed 3-4 servings. Use Paul Newman's roasted garlic red sauce if I don't make my own. THANKS!

Wow, excellent meatballs. My go to recipe for them from now on! My kids loved them and also said they tasted even better the next day for lunch. I used garlic powder, the powdery type of parm. cheese instead of shredded and jarred sauce. I added some sauteed onions to the sauce. I baked the meatballs in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Then finished them in the sauce for 10 minutes. Thanks.
