I just tried this, and they turned out great except I think I over cooked them, they were a little dry for me. Maybe I'll try a little less time or maybe a little bit more marinara sauce. Fantastic besides that.
I thought these meatballs were very nice. I used ground turkey and ketchup in place of the sauce (because I did not have any). I will make them again.
