      Don't know if you've tried this yet, Jan, but it is definitely worth making! The meatballs are absolutely marvellous, moist and full of flavour with those combined cheeses, very easy to make, chilled in the fridge and cook off perfectly, we had half of them last night and I have frozen the other half for later in the week. I might have been better to freeze them uncooked, but I was anticipating an extra person to be eating with us, which didn't happen, so. These meatballs would also make great lunch-box fillers, DD1 was snacking on them as I tried to wrest away enough to make a second meal! The spinach sauce is great, but I wouldn't serve it with the meatballs again, it was an interesting combination, but no one was too thrilled about it, and we do like spinach. Again, I had extra sauce, and I'll be using that with pasta, liked tortellini or gnocchi, cooked and then gently baked in the sauce to allow for absorption, I think it'll be marvellous. So, two very nice recipes, Jan!
