I love these meatballs. You can fire them up with cayenne pepper.

I liked these, but DH found them a bit too spicy for Italian style meatballs - they were nice however! We ate them with pasta and a simple tomato sauce. I think I will leave out the sausage meat next time - or just use one sausage. Thanks!
