This was my first attempt at meatballs since becoming a vegetarian 18 months ago, and I was delighted! My non-veg husband enjoyed this as well, although my 5- and 3- year old daughters were less than impressed. We served them over rice, and they made for a filling, delicious meal! I followed some suggestions and made a couple small changes of my own: used eggbeaters in place of eggs, nonfat cottage cheese, chopped the pecans almost to the point of mincing, used half Italian breadcrumbs and half Panko, didn't have sage but added 1/4 tsp cumin. Prepared the sauce as directed, but it seemed oily - may try less oil next time. Baked as directed, 35 minutes at 350, and they came out great. Actually didn't have room in the pan for all the meatballs so I baked 4 separately on a cookie sheet, will try them tomorrow night over spaghetti with marinara. Easy, quick, and yummy - give it a try!
