Kelly I used lean ground Lamb and these meatballs were fabulous. Had some frozen homemade gravy so served that on the side with Mashed potatoes, baby carrots and snowpeas, Very, very good Thanks
I thought that these were good meatballs, however the cheese flavour overpowered all the other flavours.
Five Stars all the way!! After so much turkey and trimmings.I was craving italian.and this recipe hit the spot. It was also very simple to make and really added to my spaghetti sauce.
