    This was great, the spicy sauce was wonderful on the meatballs, the whole family loved it.
    It was high in fibre and low in calories for a meal.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Really good flavor! I used turkey instead of chicken, and it was still great. I'll definitely make it again! - 1/10/09
