    Kting's Note:

    Because I'm a new Mama! These meatballs are fantastic in an Italian red sauce with pasta or on their own. I like the fact that they are made in the oven because it's less of a mess. When my husband has been a very good boy I make him these meatballs. Hope you enjoy. Please let me know. Thanks!

      Yep, these were brilliant. I cut out the salt and used home-made breadcrumbs since we're on a low-sodium diet, but the rest of the flavours came through beautifully. Shallots a lovely difference from the onion I usually use. Plus, oven baking like this made for a much lower fat option than the usual pan-frying. Thanks so much!

      *Made for PAC Spring '08* Delicious! My family really loved these flavorful meatballs. I used half ground beef and half ground pork. After using a 1/4 cup measure, my meatballs were about 2" in diameter, not 1/2", so I got about 25 meatballs out of this recipe. Because the meatballs were larger, they took about 30 mins. to reach 160 degrees in the center. I served these in pasta sauce with spaghetti noodles. My family loved these and gave them 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
