Since my DH does not eat tomatoes I am always on the lookout for a different take on a midweek meal. I usually have meatballs prepared in the freezer so that I can take out how many we need and vary the sauces each time. This is one of my childrens favourite. However, this is the meatballs and sauce from the beginning. Enjoy.
