This was delicious! The carrots made the meatballs. For those of you who had problems, make sure you grate the carrots fine like the fancy cheese blends. I used regular brown rice instead of minute rice and cooked it in a seperate saucepan. I added the meatballs to rice pan because the skillet looked greasy. Because my rice was already cooked, I omitted the water. Next time I will add a little more dressing to the rice.
