It's All Greek to Me Meatballs

This is from the May 2004 issue of Prevention Magazine. I added extra feta so the initial point of reducing the fat content by using less feta cheese has been thrown out the window. The recipe calls for brown rice, an ideal way of using up leftover rice or you can use cooked orzo if you wish. Update: per the excellent advice of Chef Geist, I added 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the meat mixture. Good call, Chef Geist and thank you!
