This recipe had great flavor, and the kids ate it too. I didn't rate it 5 stars because the meatballs fell apart and made more of a meat sauce than firm meatballs. I didn't have red wine so I used dry beer instead and they came out great. I served rotini and used a plain red sauce to serve them with. Definately a keeper as the meatballs had great flavor and they were moist through out.

The meatballs tasted great but they did want to fall apart. Seems like they needed more filler to prevent this from happening, but the flavor was great! Would make again but will add more breadcrumbs next time.

This recipe is OUTstanding! The key to keeping meatballs in their ball form is to start with a cold pan and to heat them gently until their outsides are cooked before moving them around too much. We followed the directions with the exception of doubling the recipes so that we could have leftovers to take to work. This recipe is a keeper and we'll be making it again for weekend dinners with lunchtime leftovers. We served the sauce over long noodles with sides of garlic bread and a raw spinach salad and a simple vinegar dressing.

Meatballs fell apart and lacked flavor. Made the sauce that went with it and felt 1/2 cup of wine was too much
