This is my own combination of the best several recipes and a family favorite. Be sure and use ground beef with the lowest amount of fat you can find because these meatballs aren't browned before adding them to the sauce. Enjoy!

The sauce was very bland. I had to doctor it up quite a bit. And I even though I added water regularly it still came out a little too dry. The meatballs were very good though. For the meatballs I'll use the recipe again.

My fiance and his mother liked it so much they filled up on spaghetti and refused desert. I found it got too pasty, however, and had to keep adding water during cooking to keep the sauce from clumping.
