    This recipe from Canadian Living Magazine can also be made with ground beef, chicken or pork. The meatballs and sauce would also be good served over pasta.

      We gave this a "three forks up" (only 3 because there are only 3 of us)! We loved it. With my pound of gr. turkey, I made 20 meatballs. My meatballs stuck to the foil when baking, so I would spray the foil with cooking spray (canola or olive) and probably use heavier foil because it tore also. I just cooked the sauce in a pan, and added the meatballs when they were done in the oven. I used red and green peppers because I had some to use up. And we loooooved these sandwiches!

      Absolutely delicious! They were perfectly flavored and honestly, I did not have the time to make the homemade sauce, so I just simmered the meatballs in "Traditional" Ragu sauce and cooked them in the oven a little longer than the recipe called for. But they were so tender and juicy! Oh I want another one just talking about it! lol
