      We loved the way the recipe worked with cooking the meatballs in the sauce and the sauce is wonderful. It is easy to make. We would make this again but would add more spices to the meatballs, maybe soy sauce and more garlic.

      I really liked this recipe! I cheated and used frozen meatballs, and just cooked it for slightly less time. I also added soy, garlic powder, a little ground mustard, beef soup base, and a little cider vinegar to the sauce. But I highly recommend this as a starting point, and it was so good I'm sure it'd be great without my changes as well.
