"When I don't have enough time to make spaghetti sauce from scratch, I dress up a store-bought jar with fresh vegetables and frozen meatballs," says Mary Ann Kosmas of Minneapolis, Minnesota. "A touch of wine makes it special."
"CHRISTMAS was the time when our family forgot about the food budget and splurged on one special meal. I can still see Grandmother making dozens of these little meatballs! The hint of spices gives them a savory taste that makes them authentically Norwegian."
These meatballs can also be made with ground venison instead of the ground beef - they're delicious either way! The recipe is great for parties or other social gatherings because it's simple to make and can easily be doubled.
In Easton, Pennsylvania, Margaret Glassic lets this hearty sauce simmer while she mixes up the meatballs. "I've served this pasta dish for 50 years, and people still tell me it's the best they've had," she relates.
