    Serving size must be wrong. Perhaps 85 cal per meatball? 1.5 lbs of ground beef is 1445 cal alone.

    I work with La Cense Beef, they are an all natural grass fed beef company. For those concerned about eating all natural and organic products, there organic beef would be perfect in this recipe.
