Recipe by DianeNJ
A moist rich tasting meatball with a smooth creamy sauce that get devoured every time. I have served these over buttered noodles or made double batches and bought to potluck dinners and they disappear.I have used ground turkey and it works nicely too!

What a delicious dish!! It was so easy to prepare. I took it to a potluck and it disappeared so quickly, people wanted the recipe and were suprised to find that it had applesauce in it. I would definitely make again.
