      Family loves it!!!!The meatballs are great when they first come out of the oven. It is hard not to eat them before putting them in the sauce.

      These meatballs are delicious. I prepared using Prego instead . I also subbed oats for crumbs.My husband said it was the best spaghetti he'd ever had he went on and on . Truly a keeper. Thanks!!!

      The flavor was EXCELENT and the meatballs really made this dish. SO satisfying and SO tasty. The measurment of meatballs to sauce was perfect. Just enough of everything and plenty left over for tomorrow! Thank you for sharing! P.S. - For fun I added mushrooms and a splash of red wine to the sauce before simmering and I browned the meatballs on the stove before putting them in the oven. Turned out fantastic.
