    JenniferK2's Note:

    We used to have this every Wednesday. This is essentially my grandma's recipe, I just add more cheese to the meatballs than she did. Sometimes I leave the neckbones out and add some Italian sausage.

      I thought the meatballs were on the mushy side, could have used some black pepper. Nothing too fantastic.

      I have made this few times,making it again tonight and just remembered to comment on it!. This is absolutely scrumptious! the only thing i do differently is omit the neckbones,put extra cheese and fresh basil in meatballs and add about a cup of white wine and few basil leaves into the gravy!!my family loves it and wants me to make it all the time! thanks for sharing this great recipe :):)
