"Everyone will wonder what you did differently this time around. The secret is cilantro. Cilantro is wonderful in guacamole but it takes on a whole different flavor in these delicious meatballs. Trust me, I've made these for many potlucks and everyone always loves them. Even people who swear they hate cilantro."

3 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons
finely chopped onion
finely chopped cilantro
garlic, finely chopped
Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 (32 ounce) jar
pasta sauce (such as Prego®)
I apologize for having used oatmeal instead of Italian seasoned bread crumbs, but when I saw all the wonderful herbs in this recipe just I had to try it - regardless that I lacked bread crumbs in the pantry! I would have liked these flavorful little meatballs much more had they not been so salty. I will make these again (the oatmeal worked fine, by the way), but experiment by cutting the salt in half. Made per recipe, the salt is waaaay too much.
