      DH and I made these meatballs last night for dinner and really enjoyed them. They are a bit of work, but the aroma that filled the house and the flavor were fantastic. The meatballs and herbed couscous were very complimentary. We made no modifications to the recipe as posted. Thanks! Made for ZWT6.
