"Very easy, very tasty. I doubled the recipe and used frozen meatballs; I mixed the sauces together in a crockpot, stirred in the meatballs and then heated them through while I worked on other appetizers for our New Year's Eve party. Our guests gave this recipe two thumbs up. This recipe is a keeper!!"
