Made this for a holiday party with rave reviews. Moist and tender. Just as easy as any other meatball recipe. (I forgot to add parsley with no adverse reaction.) Great tasting sauce. I froze the meatballs ahead of time, then defrosted them, made the sauce, put everything in the crockpot and let it go. This would also make a really tasty meatloaf! As Rachel Ray says, "YUMMO!"

These are simple to make and taste very good! I made one change however, in that I baked the meatballs first and drained the fat off before stirring them into the sauce. Brought these to two holiday parties this season and got raves each time, and requests for the recipe. Thanks for posting!
