Not sure if my DH really liked the meatballs, I think he prefers my Kittencal's Melt-In-Your-Mouth Parmesan Meatballs better, but I enjoyed the meatballs from this recipe, I did add in seasoned salt in place of white salt, also I did increase the herbs in the tomato sauce, it needed a lift, thanks littleturtle, we did enjoy it!...Kitten:)
