In this dish,  you will have a bit of Malta, a bit of Italy and a bit of Sweden ! Meatballs made with Maltese Sausage, served in a creamy sauce just like the Swedes do it, but with a little Marsala, borrowed from the Italians!  If you do not find Maltese Sausage, you can also use Italian Sausage.  Whichever you use, the end result is truly delicious!
