Easy & deilcious. I made my own sausage & just fried it ala ground meat without making meatballs. I did amp up the garlic.

pretty good, a little too tomato-y for my tastes but definitely easy and quick to make! thanks for the recipe!

This sauce went together very easily and the aroma of the meatballs simmering was driving us crazy, LOL. Instead of serving this over spaghetti, I made meatball sandwiches by using toasted hoagie rolls rubbed with fresh garlic cloves and then topped with the meatballs and sauce.
