      I'm sorry but my family didn't care for this one. We didn't really like the meatballs or the sauce. Again I'm sorry, just not our taste I guess.

      What a terrific recipe! I adored the red pepper sauce and can't wait to try it with roasted peppers next time. I substituted turkey but will definitely use chicken next time for the finer, smoother texture and I'll bake the meatballs next time just because that's easier than pan frying. This makes a beautiful presentation and it's not difficult to make. Congratulations, papergoddess, this is a winner in my cookbook.

      The meatballs in this recipe are amazingly flavourful! (I baked them in the oven for about 25 minutes so I didn't have to stand at the stove & watch them.) However, the sauce was a little bland. But, I was so impressed with how low the fat content was in this dish.
