I did change this recipe up a bit, but it was very good! I used all the spices you listed in the recipe, but also added a little bit of cumin seed pepper flakes, and cinnamon (I love that combination in meatballs), and cooked everything on the stovetop. All in all, a very nice weekday recipe, thanks for posting! Made for January NA*ME Tag.

Must admit I also misinterpreted the directions and thought I was supposed to cook the casserole on top of the stove, but this worked well, to be honest, I chose to brown the meatballs in a heavy frying pan and added the pre-sauteed vegetables to that, covering and cooking at a low heat. We really enjoyed the fusion of flavours, slightly exotic without being too strong for the girls, and absolutely perfect served on couscous, which we all love. Good moist meatballs, the vegetables were not overcooked, this was enjoyed by all, and DH enjoyed the leftovers for a very good lunch today!!! Thank you, awalde, another excellent recipe, made for PRMR tag game.
