As a recipe aimed towards kids, this is a really good one. These meatballs are not overly seasoned and the sauce is very mild with a hint of sweet to it. Both my DS's (4 and 1) ate them up and 4 yr old asked for seconds!! The only change I would make next time is double the sauce ingredients since we didn't eat as an appy, a little more sauce to pour over the top would be good. Made for Bargain Basement Tag 4/2010.
