This is a recipe from one of my mother's old cookbooks called Our Favorite Casseroles from the 1970's's very similar to a Lebanese dish I once had that wrapped the meatballs in a cabbage leaf. I usually use a can of diced tomatoes for the recipe instead of cutting them myself, which makes this simple recipe even simpler.
