I changed this recipe quite a bit as I cooked up some vegetables (eggplant and red pepper) with the meatballs then poured the sauce over it all and let it simmer for 10 minutes. It made an absolutely delicious meal - the flavours are lovely! Thanks for posting this recipe.
Loved these little meatballs...I made mine a little larger than indicated, (15) and used a small tin of lite coconut cream. They were really tasty, thanks for posting. =)
