I was quite surprised how wonderful these turned out! Obviously, I would never try to fool anyone that these were actual MEAT, but I think this is a wonderful meatless substitution to the old Italian favorite. These "meat" balls are great served over spaghetti in your favorite tomato sauce. And taste even better leftover the next day.
