This was delicious! I saw the other reviewer gave this recipe only 4 stars because after cooking for 40 minutes the "rice was still hard and undercooked". The recipe calls for cooked rice so not sure how it can come out undercooked. Anyway, give it a try, it's a wonderful, hearty recipe - especially for the fall/winter months ahead.


i made this tonight, most of the family enjoyed it. since i have young (picky!) children, i changed it a bit. i made the meatballs and baked them in a 350 oven for about 25 minutes and skipped the spaghetti sauce (which really isn't popular at our house). i also did not have any oregano (blush) so i used 1/2 tsp of dried basil and also used a bag of microwaveable rice instead of cooking my own. it was yummy and my husband is happy to take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!


We loved these meatballs! The turkey stayed moist and tender, and cooked just right simmering on low for 20 minutes. I sauteed the rice with butter and onion, before adding the water and a beef bouillon cube. This added a nice tang to the rice in the recipe. An excellent dish which will make much loved leftovers.
