Made this for my husband who loved it! Said it was zesty and enjoyed every bite! Thanks for sharing ~ I now have a meatball sandwich recipe on hand when he wants one! :)

Like a lot of other people, I added more spice, namely basil, rosemary, and thyme the next time 'round and it was much more flavorful. Also I recommend lowering the time in the oven by 5-10 min to retain more juice in the final product.

Quite good. I always add FAR more spice than a recipe calls for, and did so here by adding lots of minced garlic. I also used bread crumbs. A good one.
