Recipe by Oolala

I took this from a community cookbook. It sounds like a strange combination that I look forward to trying.

I don't usually like to be the first to try a recipe but I gave this one a whirl and it is awesome...really good combination of flavors. I cooked the meatballs without the sauce on them so I could drain the grease ...then put a jar of Ragu on them instead of the soup and put them back in the oven for a little while. Excellent recipe.
