The Best Tuna Meatballs

Cinnamon and…tuna?  You better believe it!  I think of cinnamon often but rarely do I think of it and tuna at the same time.  Cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon toast.  Cinnamon and oatmeal.  Sure.  But cinnamon tuna?

Jamie Oliver has a recipe in his cookbook, Jamie’s Italy, called Le Migliori Polpette di Tonno (The Best Tuna Meatballs) that combines these two flavors and the result is out-of-this-world good.

As an aside, whenever a recipe claims it is the best, the skeptic in me has to find out for myself.  So, I set out to make these “migliori” meatballs and believe me when I say that they are indeed the best tuna meatballs and dangerously close to the best meat flavored meatballs I have ever had.  Jamie says they can be served with spaghetti or linguine but we ate ours with a side of sautéed spinach and a Mediterranean coca.  What’s a coca?  Stay tuned…
