    Loved making the meatballs this way but did find the sauce a little bland.. might add more tomato paste or some chilli next time, and more seasoning. I added a carrot and small zucchini to the sauce. Will put this recipe on the rotation.

    This is the second time I have made these. The first time I thought they were a bit bland, so this time I added a tablespoon of apricot jam, a tablespoon of fruit chutney, a quarter teaspoon of curry powder and an onion. They were superb. Best I have ever made. Thank you.

    My butcher doesn't do pork mince, so I did all beef. They were great.

    Lovely thank you! The family enjoyed this. I added a carrot and zucchini to the sauce with 1 onion. I cooked the meatballs in the oven, because that is what I am used to, but next time I will try cooking them in the Varoma tray. Next time, blitz the garlic first or mince it as there was still big chunks of garlic.

They ate every last bit and both them and mummy smiled the whole time!! Love all in one dishes that cook at the same time and don't have to use any other kitchen utensils or cookware!! Will be a frequent dinner in our house maybe with Turkey mince next time. Thanks again!!

    Submitted by BlingFish on 11. June 2016 - 11:20.

    This was great, and my two small and very fussy boys chowed it down.  I omitted the sugar and added a carrot and zucchini to the sauce.  I would have preferred to use fresh herbs but only had dried so used those and it was still nice.  We only use Ardmona brand tinned tomatoes everything tastes better with them.

    Submitted by kjohnson on 28. May 2016 - 11:24.

    LOL! I've done that before too! Give the sauce a taste before serving too- if bland add a little more sugar and a bit of salt to see if that helps it. (Just do gradually so you don't over salt.  My Nonna used the Val Verde brand of tinned tomatoes.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I chose your recipe because of all the good comments. I only had Parmesan, but all other ingredients were fresh, good quality and as per the recipe. Thanks for the tip about the tinned tomatoes. I'll give it another go with the Romano cheese as you suggested and a different brand of tinned tomatoes and tell my husband it's a different recipe !!

    Submitted by kjohnson on 28. May 2016 - 10:25.

    Oh that's no good!! This is abnormal to the rest of my feedback. Did you use all the correct ingredients and were they good quality and fresh? I also find the quality of the tinned tomatoes can make a huge difference too.  The Romano cheese is very important too! Salt can help bring the flavour of the sauce out if all other ingredients are ok.

    Husband asked me not to make again! We found the meatballs didn't have much flavour, but loved steaming them. The sauce was a little bland for us too. I will have to keep looking for my spaghetti and meatballs recipe to add to my collection.
