    dividend's Note:

    These are fantastic (and fantastically convenient) basic meatballs. I love the fact that I can get 4 batches of meatballs made all at once. When I cook them in spaghetti sauce, I normally serve half of them over pasta, and then use the other half to make meatball subs. I try to keep these in my freezer at all times. (Cooking time is freezing time.)

      The meatballs are good,a nice texture & they stay together very well. Nothing to write home about but good. I just browned the meatballs (12 of them) poured a 1 lb. 10oz. jar of Ragu over them in the skillet & let them simmer for 1/2 hr. That much sauce seems to cover 1/2 of a one pound box of cooked spaghetti. At my house the recipe served three of us. Four meatballs each & a generous amount of Spag. & sauce.
