    Ilysse's Note:

    I have used Thyme rather than Sage in the past and it was just as good. This is an easy recipe with AMAZING results. Its perfect for company and quite impressive. You can use ground Turkey rather than Veal if you like. I don't know where I got this from. The cooking & prep times are just guesses. Serve this as a main dish with pasta, risotto, rice or potatoes as a side or part of a larger Italian meal after the Pasta course with a steamed vegetable on the side. Make sure you have some bread for cleaning that plate!

      this was amazing- the sauce was INCREDIBLE! we used ground turkey instead of veal (we over cooked the meatballs in the beginning,so they were a little dry after simmering, but that was our own fault) - besides that we followed the recipe exactly and it was so delicious! we served it with smashed red potatoes, they perfect with the sauce, and a salad. I can't say even describe how delicious this was!

      If I had followed the recipe I am sure it would rate high. I made the sauce and simmered in vegetarian meatballs. Divine! 5 stars for the sauce!
