I thought this was delicious. I loved the combination of flavors. I thought the cloves sounded odd but, since I really like cloves, I went ahead and added them. So, I made it exacty as written. Thanks alot!
First of all, I want to say that the sauce is GREAT. I hate running to the store to get that one ingredient you just don't keep on hand. Everything in this recipe is something almost everyone has. The only reason I subtracted one star is because cooking the meatballs in the sauce makes for a LOT of fat in the final recipe. Also, I made this recipe with 1/2 hamburger and 1/2 sausage. That was MY mistake, NOT the recipe's. The sausage flavor was too strong for this sauce so, if you are thinking of doing this.. you shouldn't. Overall, the recipe was a huge success. Thank you.
I have a suggestion for people who do not like vegetables, like myself. Just TRY this! I seriously worry about my health because, there are extremely few vegetables that I like. This is a super food and, I looked it up, baked kale retains it's nutrients! Yay! After reading about kale's nutrients, I thought this MIGHT be a way I can actually eat it. And it was DELICIOUS! It really doesn't need anything else except for whats in the recipe but, I may experiment with this superfood now. I still don't have the courage to try raw kale, tho. I can tell by looking at it that I won't like it! LOL Also, it's important to not get any stems! They taste bad!
Wow! This soup was so delicious! I'm sorry, I did use chicken broth instead of vegetable because, I didn't have vegetable but, I feel like I could almost mix this combination of ingredients with water and, it would be good! I actually used measuring spoons while making this and, the combination of the herbs and spices are just AWESOME!
