This was quick and easy to throw together. I left out the olives (personal preference) and added lots of shredded cheddar cheese to my dish and the sauce turned out so cheesy and yummy! It's a nice change of pace from the way I usually make my spaghetti and meatballs. Thanks for sharing.

This is a quick and easy meal, perfect for those busy nights. I followed instructions as listed using a 24 oz jar of Classico Four Cheese pasta sauce and my Italian Meatballs, recipe #418080, with great results. Will make this again, thanks for sharing :)
