  1. Very good and very different. I doubled the sauce and added 1/2 chopped onion and red pepper flakes. I also used fresh baby spinach and light sour cream. Great change of pace for meatballs. We enjoyed this dinner, thanks!
  2. The recipe is great, I like finding something else to do with meatballs. The flavor is very different but tasty. I think I used larger meatballs than what was intended (large golfball size) and it filled my 2 quart round casserole dish to the top so the sauce didn't cover half the meatballs and it was too hard to stir. Next time I will either use a bigger casserole dish or smaller meatballs.
  3. We really liked this recipe. I liked having meatballs in something other than spaghetti. Next time I make it, I will double the sauce because there wasn't much of it left after baking.
  4. Crymara, a great recipe. Although I cheated and used Italian spices (from spice grinder)as I just didn't want the dill and cumin. We liked it very much, although next time I too will double the sauce. And it was very quick, to make and also to cook.. A keeper....thanks....Janet
  5. I loved this recipe. It was so simple to prepare and tasted great! I served it over mashed potatoes. I did double the sauce amounts and next time will increase the cornstarch to get a slightly thicker sauce. This is one of those very versatile recipes. Simply by changing the herbs & spices used, you could crate a whole new taste. I'm looking forward to some experimenting. Thanks for sharing this one.
