Spanish Meatballs With Green Olives

Recipe by Dienia B.

My Mom knew a Spanish nurse and this is the recipe she gave her. I liked it a lot. It has white wine and green olives in it.

We loved the combination of the salty and tangy olives with the meatballs. I made extra meatballs and froze them so we could have this again. Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.
