Introduction

This recipe is the compromise between my husband's wariness of animal fat, my adherence to a Paleo diet (or at the least gluten-free) and our love of Italian comfort food.
James (my husband) proclaimed that "I have never met a better meatball!" and ask "What kind of meat is this?". What he didn't know was that he was detecting a better balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats thanks to the Walnuts.
Who needs french bread crumbs?!?
