A delicious appetizer that can be made a day ahead and reheated just before serving. A touch of the tropics! Posted for ZWT3

I loved the nutmeg in these and will make my meatballs like that for now on. The only change is I would add more breadcrumbs as the meatballs were too soft. I love the sauce and now I don't have to buy bottled! I will definately make again. Made for ZWT 5.
