I was looking for something simple, easy and tasty. I came across this recipe, and I'm so glad I did. This one filled all those requirements! (Side note: I ended up adding nearly twice the sauce called for in the recipe; just personal preference). Even had some left over meatballs and sauce, which made excellent meatball sandwiches the next day. Thanks, Jesse, for a great keeper recipe!
