""Amazing" 30,YES"30"yrs. I've been using this recipe. NOT ONE PERSON ever had a dislike. It got to the point I wanted it to be my special recipe,but every week....someone would request I make them for a party etc. That's when I gave up and just printed off the recipe when ever I made it!!! But mind u.I double up on the sauce, other wise I find it to dry. Guess that's my dirty secret!"

"Yum! These were so good. To make them lower carb, I used Splenda instead of sugar and it was really good. I put them into a slow cooker and it make them so good."

"I've made this recipe several times since I found in last fall, and we just love it. Yesterday, since I was only making a half batch, I just added the sauce to the skillet, covered it and cooked on low until the meatballs were done."
