My son and I love this recipe, there is never any leftovers. I make homemade meatballs and cook them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, and then add them to the simmering sauce, we like this served over noodles with sesame seeds sprinkled on top.
This was super easy and excellent tasting. My husband loved it.
So yummy....I add red onion and different color s of bell peppers-very pretty.
