recipe for lamb meatballs with fennel sauce

Claire | Jul 16, 2007 10:57 AM

Hi. I was in Florence recently and had a wonderful dish there. It featured tiny lamb meatballs that were very lemony and lightly flavored with anise seed. The sauce had a fine dice of carrots and pieces of fennel. It was slightly creamy, but I don't think there was dairy in the ingredients. It was served over penne. I've looked for similar recipes in Italian cookbooks, and have come up empty handed. Does anyone have a recipe like what I've described, or know of a cookbook that would include something like it? Thanks everyone.
