      Easy. Whole family loved it. Will make again and probably add olives to half for my husband and I.

      Easy, basic, fantastic recipe ~ especially for a family with lots of little ones! They loved the meatballs, I loved how easy it was to make a delicious, hearty meal the whole family would enjoy! The only changes I made were to use cottage cheese, rather than ricotta (it was what I had on hand), and I increased the amounts to fit a larger baking dish. In the future, I may play around with the flavors in the sauce - yet it was a delicious comfort-food as is!

      This is an old favorite in our house-I make a few changes to the pasta sauce by adding mushrooms-italian seasoning and a bit of red wine.
