      We had this for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it! I added some miced garlic to the meatballs out of habit. We ate it as subs but for leftovers I will serve over angel hair pasta. Thanks!

      Made as directed, the sauce was soupy, not even as thick as a gravy. The meatballs were mushy. I thought the entire dish was bland & boring. I served mine on extra wide buttered noodles.

      My husband absolutely loved this and insisted I give it five stars! I thought the addition of katchup in the meatballs was a really good idea, and leaving it in the oven makes it really easy and hassle free. Thanks for sharing!
