Meatballs and Red Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

Use your own frozen meatballs or there are some nice ones in the super market. Canned whole tomatoes could also be used, but this recipe was my way of using up a garden tomato that was slightly past it's slicing prime. The alcohol in the wine brings out hidden flavors in the tomato, but you can leave that out if you wish. Cooking is a Creative Sport.

Excellent sauce recipe that my whole family enjoyed to the max! I made my own meatballs, but that only made it better! I plan to make this sauce for my lasagna too!
