    Sweet Diva's Note:

    A tasty recipe that we enjoy. (I often make large batches of meatballs and freeze them to use in recipes such as this - a real time saver!) This meal cooks in one skillet, minimizing clean-up - who can't appreciate that?!

      HA! I make this recipe and took pics. I post the picks and then decided to check for the recipe. This is exactly the one and it's great and will be a repeat! The tomatoes I used "Hunts Fire Roasted diced". I added more onion. Thanks for a good one!
