I found this recipe in a copy of Cooks Illustrated magazine. Well worth the time and effort in making this dish! The meatballs are highly spiced, but balances well with the marinara sauce. I made fresh pasta noodles and served it with the Classic Garlic Bread from Cooks Illustrated and my own Caesar Salad. There was a lot of yumms going around the table! Thanks for posting this recipe as I would surly have done it!!! It is a keeper!!

We used half the amount of wine the recipe suggested... as we are not too fond of red wine. But the sauce came out great, as did the meatballs. Baking them at such a high temp is a good method. It's a very good meatballs & marinara recipe. We will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing

The marinara sauce was really good, I actually got some of the sauce left over so I put it on the pizza. It was really delicious. One of the best marinara sauces on pizza I've ever had!
