Very nice low fat dish. I used ground chicken and low sodium bouillon. Served it over brown rice with mixed veg on the side. Be warned that this dish is very mildly flavored; I added some extra thyme to the sauce. The meatballs were a bit dry but low-fat will do that. Since 5 stars means 'you just gotta try this', I give it a four; ie good recipe, healthy, and still WAY better than many low-fat dishes.
