READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This very different sauce turns frozen or homemade meatballs into a scrumptious dinner or an intriguing appetizer. The recipe comes from a 1967 issue of Sunset.

Very good. Very rich. Very easy. Need I say more? I used non fat half and half and it worked well. I served it over orzo instead of mashed potatoes with mixed veggies and rolls.
