Cut the recipe in half and followed as written...delicious! My little helper for the day loved shaping the meatballs and even more in getting to taste the final product. Made for Fall PAC 2011.

These are excellent meatballs. I usually double the meatballs and triple the sauce. You shouldn't denegrate my notebook paper recipes. Be amazed that I saved that little scap of paper for 20 years.
