Have to give these meatballs 5 stars even though I did not use the sauce recipe simply because I like the one I usually make. After tasting the meatballs, I may try the sauce next time too as I'm sure it's delicious. I had about 1-1/2 pounds of ground beef so upped the bread crumbs and the cheese. To be honest, I think I overdid it, at least the bread crumbs. I used about a cup even though half again as much would have been 3/4 cup. Next time I will definitely start with 1/2 cup, even for 1-1/2 pound ground beef. I grated parmesan cheese using the fine grater side and probably put about 3/4 cup of that in. The flavour was good on that. I tasted a meatball last night (when I made it) and was actually a tiny bit disappointed because to me it seemed squishy somehow -- a definite bread crumb problem. The flavour was great though so I just thought, next time I'll cut back. Well today we had meatball sandwiches (on a nice crusty baguette) and -- well, the meatballs tasted out of this world!! I guess resting in the sauce made a big difference. I will still cut back on the bread crumbs (sort of a "when in doubt, follow the directions" type moment LOL), but that was my goof, not the recipe. You can't beat the flavour and the ease of preparation. I did pan fry them a bit before putting in the sauce but baking would be good too. Takes a nice spaghetti dinner to a whole new level. Thank you for sharing.
