      We absolutely loved the meatballs, I browned them in the frypan and then finished cooking them in the oven. I had scaled the recipe back for 20 meatballs and got 23 and I tripled the sauce though only used half an onion as I was serving the over pasta but the sauce for me was a little disappointing as it was so thin but the DS and DM thought it was great and went back for seconds. Thank you Tisme, made for Aussie/Kiwi tag game Make My Recipes.
