    Good recipe from Southern Living. Sometimes I cheat and use frozen meatballs to save time.

      This is great! I made the meatballs earlier in the day and baked them. I love all the vegetables in this dish and the sauce was thick and flavorful. I really think this is a pretty simple dish if you plan ahead! I think it might be nice to cut the meatballs in half to make it easier to eat unless you make the meatballs smaller than I did. Thanks for sharing!

      Smelled great cooking and I thought this was good, though I figured it would never be a favorite; family thought it was just okay. I probably would have given this 4 stars but it ended up being really time consuming (took more than twice as long as the listed time) and made a fairly large mess. It was a good dinner for tonight, but I probably won't make it again. Sorry.

      I fixed this last night for company. Easy and quick to get together at the last minute if you are prepared ahead of time. For example, I had the meatballs all ready the night before so that I just through it together quickly last night. Thanks for posting a very tasty dish.
