  • These were pretty good, though I would have added more seasonings. We baked them. Then we heated two boxes of organic chicken broth. To that we added Ramen noodles (without the seasoning packets, though we did add one), fresh mushrooms and some pepper corns. It was an awesome soup. - 1/16/09

  • I loved this and it had a lot of flavor. I used whole wheat bread instead of the breadcrumbs, and my family loved them too! - 10/29/08

  • These are great! I cooked them in chicken broth, added chopped up veggies, spinanch, bay leaf and small shell pasta. It made an awesome italian wedding soup. Thanks so much for sharing! - 10/14/08

  • These meatballs are delicious - and versatile. I also added spinach to mine. I had them with whole wheat pasta and low sodium teriyaki sauce for a little Asian flavor and next will have them with pasta and marinara sauce. I've also considered putting them in some chicken broth with noodles/rice. - 10/1/08

  • This was VERY good, I used this recipe with the help of my Deceptively Delicious cookbook, and pureed the carrot, and since I did not have zucchini on hand, I sauteed in PAM and then sliced up spinach-- my picky eating boyfriend had NO idea.. Oh and I am Italian too :) Very Good! - 9/23/08
