    The 25 minutes in the oven allow for enough time to clean the kitchen, or cook a side dish.

    I loved the taste of the salsa over the meatballs, but the olives were too much for me. I liked the olive flavor, but in a more subtle way. I suggest only putting olives in half of the meatballs; then it would be a real "surprise."

    Jewish Rye Bread and Queen Size Spanish Olives make this an excellent recipe.
