    This was horrible! For 1) the meatballs mostly fell apart when cooking 2) The taste was like something artificial and 3) They felt like rubber. I'd rather just use ground lean turkey or make them out of plain breadcrumbs and egg. I'm sure that'd taste better than this disgusting dish

    I personally liked this but as for my husband and kids they really disliked it. They said you could tell the meatballs were not made with real meat and there wasn't enough sauce. I would make it again but only for myself.
