Very good and very different. I doubled the sauce and added 1/2 chopped onion and red pepper flakes. I also used fresh baby spinach and light sour cream. Great change of pace for meatballs. We enjoyed this dinner, thanks!

The recipe is great, I like finding something else to do with meatballs. The flavor is very different but tasty. I think I used larger meatballs than what was intended (large golfball size) and it filled my 2 quart round casserole dish to the top so the sauce didn't cover half the meatballs and it was too hard to stir. Next time I will either use a bigger casserole dish or smaller meatballs.

We really liked this recipe. I liked having meatballs in something other than spaghetti. Next time I make it, I will double the sauce because there wasn't much of it left after baking.
