Good recipe! It tasted good. To save time I modified it a bit. I added the olive oil into the mixture, made it into patties (instead of meatballs), and used a George Foreman grill to quickly cook it.

These were great! I served them over sliced, sauteed zucchini with tomatoes. It was kind of like spaghetti and meatballs.

Loved them for a light meatball recipe. I did as the previous rater did, by serving it over zucchini and had a light spaghetti sauce.. it was HEAVEN. A MUCH healthier alternative to spaghetti and meatballs.
