    ms_bold's Note:

    After seeing this recipe on an episode of 30 Minute Meals, I decided to tweak it a little to suit what I had on hand and what I knew would work in my house. It's a fairly simple (although, I won't claim that it only takes 30 minutes...nothing ever does, does it?) meal that is pretty healthy with the lean protein, the whole grain, and all the veggies. Although as with any Asian inspired meal, the soy sauce does account for a lot of sodium.

      I too saw this recipe on Rachael Ray and was going to post it because it my family really loved it. I was glad to see it was already posted and reviewed. It was easy, healthy and flavorful. Next time I will cut the five spice powder in half - it was just to strong for our tastes otherwise I would leave it just like it is. Great recipe!

      I too just saw this on 30 Minute Meals and had to try it. I used 2 cups of crushed rice krispies (as she did) instead of the whole grain bread and I skipped the spinach. I served this to my FIL for his birthday dinner and he had 3 helpings! This was my first time using five spice powder and I loved it. I also added a little garlic powder to the meatballs. This is one of those easy and delicious meals that just might become a regular at our table. Thanks for posting!

      i have made just the meatballs.
      over- all, it is a nice recipe.the meatballs come out tender .
      however- the chinese 5 spice..... hmmmmm
      once i smelled it i knew i was putting just a 1/4 teaspoon (recipe notes 1 tsp)
      i actually thought it came out nice but i think my family will want to order pizza:(
