      My biggest complaint about this recipe is that there's no way it makes 8 servings. Two little meatballs would maybe be something you would serve as an appetizer. I wish I had realized that before I went to the trouble. It took a bit of prep. The recipe was easy to follow. It did have a nice flavor. If I make this again it will be doubled at least.

      WOW! These are FLAVOR INFUSED FANTASTIC! I made them as directed but did increase the spices. My Hubby and I both agree they are some of the best meatballs we have had. Made for the Please Review tag game.
