    This was really tasty! I used beyond beef instead of meat for the meatballs and it still turned out well. I also used lemon juice substitute instead of an actual lemon, and it still made a nice sauce when I blended it all with a fruit ninja.

    Very good. Although I cheated. I bought premade Italian meatballs at the grocery store. I added these to the same sheet pan to finish. I did bake the meatballs added to the sheet pan for 25 minutes. I also used smoked paprika in lieu of paprika. Excellent. Loved it. Served with lettuce tomato salad topped w Parmesan and Italian dressing. I also was unnerved by the sodium salt quantity so I only used a fraction of what was called for. I did not add salt to the dressing at all.

    Tastes great. Also pairs well with rice. next time might make the meatballs a little smaller (or cook the ground meat in a skillet instead) so it blends better with the rest of it.

    This is a very flavorful dish without being hot. It's easy to make and would be great for church or other group suppers. There was so much that I didn't even make rice as there was enough without it.

    This dish is fantastic and very quick to get in the oven. I don’t care for tahini, so I made a yogurt sauce with garlic and lemon and served everything over rice. I will be making this again.

    Dinner was delicious. All the spices were perfect. The tahini sauce needed a lot of thinning out. Next time I would use less tahini and add a pinch of sugar to cut the bitterness of the lemon juice.

    I made this and it was fabulous. I stuffed all of it along with diced cucumbers and yogurt into pita bread pocket.

    The ingredients are listed twice because some of them are for the vegetables and the rest for the turkey meat balls. It is explained if you read the directions.
