    Chef Shelby's Note:

    I have tried a couple of recipes on zaar but I keep going back to my own. I got the sauce recipe from a friend of my moms and the meatball recipe is my own adaptation from a recipe on a Muellers box. Add your favorite pasta and you have a meal.

      This was very enjoyable. Since the tomatoes and tomato paste I used did not have any seasonings I added about a Tbsp each of basil and oregano. I simmered for a couple of hours then took a portion and added the meatballs. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
