“Can't remember where I got the recipe from, but it has been my family's favourite meatball recipe for years.Feel free to use any pasta sauce you have, either store bought or homemade, but keep in mind these meatballs have a lovely lemony, parmesany flavour and a really herby sauce may detract from that.”
