    I made these as a main meal served with pasta and MarraMamba's The Simplest Tomato Sauce Ever (Marcella Hazan) 273976, so I didn't use the salsa. Loved the fact that the recipe involved baking the meatballs rather than pan-frying them. Since I pretty well always buy kalamata olives, I used these. Apart from that the only change I made was to add some basil in step one. The meatballs were moist and very tasty, and the olive in the centre of the meatball added that extra dimesion. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Shelby Jo!

    We enjoyed these meatballs very much! I made just as directed and served as a meal instead of an appetizer. I like the fact that the meatballs are baked instead of fried. I'll definitely make these again!
