      After reading the previous review, I did make some minor adjustments. I decided to leave out the carrota, with the zucchini, I microwaved it, and then put them in the oven for 5 minutes, after that the juices were not that bad. For the meatballs, I baked them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. With that said, the ending result was fine here. Made for one fine meal for dinner that we all enjoyed, I did halve this, and served with my zucchini meatloaf recipe to make a complete dinner. Made and tagged for Market Tag.

      A healthy dinner but I had to make a few changes. The meatballs would not stick together so I either had to bake them (so I wouldn't have to stir them around) or remake them with breadcrumbs. I baked them at 450C for about 15 minutes. I think that part of the problem is that the zucchini was very wet and so the mixture was too wet. I also made half of the recipe and there is way too much here for the 4 of us! I would recommend that you add some garlic and more seasonings to this dish as we all salt and peppered it. It was very good but just needed some tweaks! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks I'mPat! :)
