MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2010

The meatballs themselves were delicious. I didn't have the beef broth that was called for, so I used water and dry onion soup mix instead. I also used evaporated milk instead of the heavy cream (using what I had on hand). Even with the substitutions, my family and I all enjoyed this meal.
