I enjoyed this recipe but I did almost everything differently. I used it more for inspiration. I did not have turkey so I used chicken for the meatballs. I did not have tomato sauce so I used rose sauce and threw in some fresh tomatoes. I did not have ricotta so I whipped half a cup of sour cream with half a cup of cream cheese. I did not have Ziti so I used radiatore. Other than that I followed the instructions:)
The meatballs were tender and it was very creamy. The creamy sauce really cut dow on the acidity of the tomatoes. The meatballs were great. Thanks for the inspiration!
I made only the meatballs to go with pasta primavera. I made as is, except added 1/4 cup of finely shredded asiago cheese. They were very good, but were missing a little bit of zip ...
Quickly and easily feed masses of guests with this wonderfully simple recipe.
I was looking for a simple pasta recipe to use what I already had in the pantry and this was perfect! The meatballs were super tasty and tender and my brother and I devoured our huge portions. I did without the ricotta and the parsley because I didn't have those items. I used about a jar and a half of pasta sauce. Turned out great with enough left over for today's breakfast :-)
We made just the meatballs and they were delicious, but didn't have pine nuts on hand. I'll make the whole recipe soon. Can't wait!
I did not care for this recipe. Meatballs came out dry. Using jarred sauce is ok but I use fresh mozzarella and I use whole milk riccota. I have found many other recipes and this isn't worthy of a better rating than a 1.
This was alright. The nuts gave it an odd flavor, and there was something lacking in the cheeses. My husband especially requested that I never make it again.
This was great! I love these little meatballs. We enjoyed it without the ricotta.
