    This was a childhood favorite of mine. My dad used to cook this for me, and served it over egg noodles.

      I made this a couple of months ago, it was amazing. I loved this dish, the pairing of lemon, artichokes and meatballs was beautiful. The only thing that I am going to add is more artichokes next time, I ran out of marinade way before I finished browning the meatballs.
