Tried this one out on my family and they loved it. Good for a beginner cook

I followed the directions, except that: I used a single sweet onion. I used a single .75 oz packet of McCormick Dry Gravy Mix, prepared to gravy consistency, according to the instructions; and then I added 1 tbs red wine and 1/4 tsp Good Seasons Salad Dressing Mix Italian from an 8oz pkt. I tossed cooked, wide egg noodles in a 1/4 tbs butter, a sprinkle of sea salt and 3-4 dashes of Lawry's Seasoning Lemon Pepper. Needless to say, I served the meatballs over the noodles. Prepared with the alterations I made, I warn you: There is no gravy, except for a nice glaze over the meatballs and a bit of sauce to be scraped out of the pan for extra flavor. Lighter, in my opinion and great with steamed crinkle-cut carrots...or any other veggie.
