    ClareVH's Note:

    This recipe is from Sunset's Ground Beef Cookbook. I am including the recipe for the meatballs, although I usually use frozen pre-cooked meatballs (or use your favorite meatball recipe). It is the sauce that makes this dish good! It is great for potlucks or buffets, especially if you keep it warm in a crockpot or chafing dish. Note that yield will depend on size of meatballs-I am assuming 4 to 5 meatballs per serving.

      This is a nice recipe, easy to make, and using ingredients that I often have on hand. I did make the meatballs somewhat larger, and baked them longer accordingly. The main problem I had with this was that I felt that the blue cheese (which I do like) flavor came through a little too strong for us. This, of course is a matter of personal preference. Thank you for posting this recipe.
