These meatballs are great and I'm a tough critic when it comes to anything involving tomato sauce. I made some alterations. I used 3 1bs. of beef instead of 2. I also baked the dish uncovered and drained of the fat. Last I topped it off with about 2 cups of shredded mozzerela, american and parmisean cheese. (2 c. combined) Talk about rave reviews around here! My husband is a welder and works hard so when he gets home he enjoys a hearty meal. This recipe takes some time but is very filling and tasty. Leftovers got put in the freezer for sandwiches later. You gotta try this!!

Very good! We all enjoyed. They were slightly on the salty side - but I may have gotten too much worcestershire sauce in them. I will go more lightly on it and the salt next time. I also went light on the curry as it is not my favorite spice.
