Brandon George I love this dish because it is so different than your traditional "spaghetti and meatballs", and it is SO good.

Ericka French This is Ericka French, Matt French's wife. I have to tell you, we have an 18 month old who is allergic to dairy, nuts, and eggs. I have been looking for an eggless meatball recipe for so long. We tried this recipe tonight and everyone loved it! Including my two boys who are very picky eaters. I am excited to have found this website and try all the new recipes. It's hard to find food that everyone can enjoy when one person is restricted to what they can eat. And I LOVE the substitution information, it is so helpful.
