    Eyemadreamer's Note:

    This is one of the very first dishes I made when I first got married and it is one of our top favorite dishes. It is a comfort food for me. It's not a soup dish, it's thicker than soup.

      I followed the recipe exactly except that I used homemade meatballs and 2 cans of beef broth. The beef broth was absorbed so it was more like pasta and meatballs with sauce but since I don't like soup, that was fine with me. My hubby and son loved it and had 2 bowls. I thought it was alright. the meatballs were the best part. Still, since they liked it so much, it will go into my usual rotation.

      This is definitley like a stew. I added garlic but think it needs more flavoring. You definitely need more beef broth. I added about 2 cups more, Homemade meatballs would be the best but frozen to make a quck dish.
