Meatball & Tomato Sauce (Moroccan Tagine)

“This recipe was originally for a Moroccan tagine. I changed some of the ingredients to make a wonderful meatball & tomato sauce. The different spices give it delightful sweet & spicy flavor. It is one of my favorite dishes, goes beautifully with Authentic Moroccan Bread.”
