I needed a sauce for frozen meatballs, and I'm glad I tried this one! I added a splash of worcestershire sauce. I got a little lazy, so instead of cooking noodles in a separate pot, I dropped them into the sauce pot...sort of a 'meatball helper' shortcut! So, instead of adding more flour, the pasta thickened the sauce to the right consistency for our taste. (oh - I thawed the meatballs first!)
