      It was good, i like my meatballs spicy though, but other than that everyone enjoyed them. They were very tender, i baked half of them and everyone seemed to like the baked ones better.

      This is the first time I made "good" meatballs. I baked them at 375 for about 20 min, turning 1/2 way. I simmered in my Italian stewed tomatoes. They were a big hit. We have served some over pasta, some on sandwiches, and some just got eaten the way they are with the excess sauce sopped up with bread. I will definatly make these again! Thanks Mean.
