    My venison in the freezer is running low, so am anxiously waiting for the weather to cool. Too warm this year to hunt yet. I like the addition of the raw potatoe, should make for tender & juicy meatballs.

    Yum Jim! I like this recipe, because I can't get venison should I try this with beef? I'll give it a go. . . .

    Okay, this sounds really good, Jim sweetie - but I have to admit that I have never eaten venison. I know - what a citified gal I am. But I would be a willing to try it if given the opportunity. And I don't have a tree stand or a bow, even though I know all about them. Citified. My bad...and I think I have pretty bad I doubt I could hit anything. I am quite sure I could fall out of a tree. It's a skill I've developed over the years. Hehehe. Maybe I could fall on a deer and knock it out. ;-)~ Vickie

    I love that there is wild mushrooms in the sauce. I bet this would be great with beef as well, since not all of us have bows and good aim ;-)

    p.s. try my fresh homemade pasta recipe for this
