      We thought this was phenominal! We put a dallop of sour cream on top. Excellent. Thank you for sharing! xo LA :-)

      Pretty good. The sauce came out a little too thick so maybe a little less flour. Also would bake the meatballs instead next time. Used mostly wheat bread scraps instead of white and it tasted fine. A very neutral hearty dish without any overwhelming flavors. Toddler insisted on sprinkling some garlic powder too ;). AND they ate it!
