I am making these tonight for us to have all week as lunches! They are delicious, healthy and easy to make. They are so quick and we will have them as a meatball sandwich or even as a side to a nice salad. I will put some low sodium tomato sauce and a tiny sprinkle of low fat mozzarella cheese with some lettuce all on a whole wheat pita or whole wheat bun!!!! I am always looking for quick and easy ways to serve my family meals and this one is a hit! I really encourage you to make them and I am pretty sure that everyone in the fam will gobble them up!! And, let’s face it.. we all like a quick, tasty meal that is already cooked and ready to go!!
