    We enjoyed these meatballs a lot. Not too fond of the sauce but the almonds were the saving grace. I think the next time I'll try a different brand of sauce or make it myself. Without doubt we will make the meatballs again, they were excellant, love the basil. Thanks for sharing a quick week night recipe.
