    WholeFoodieGal's Note:

    Typical tomato-based spaghetti sauce, but it is sooo much better than prepared sauce, still very easy to make. The meatballs are the only time-consuming part and they need to simmer in the sauce all day to be exceptional. This recipe was given to me 10 years ago by my mother

      this is so good! Only replaced the water with milk. Will definitely be a regular and will make more meatballs and freeze for some other recipes as well. Thanks.

      This is all good! But I always like to use fresh ingredients. And the best tip I can give - put the raw meat balls right into the sauce. It took an hour to simmer the sauce and cook the meatballs but the meatballs are so tender and juicy

      We enjoyed this recipe. It really was pretty easy to make ~ just be prepared for the long cooking time. The meatballs were very tasty and we used the leftovers in meatball subs. Thanks for posting!
