Meet the Cook: Always a favorite with my children, grandchildren and friends, these delectable meatballs take little time to prepare because they don't need to be browned before being added to the sauce. I've found that the meatballs taste best if they are mixed just until all the ingredients are blended. -Ann Rath, Mankato, Minnesota

The sauce was very good. The meat balls fell a part during cooking and the hamburger grease

left the sauce with a funkie flavor.SORRY I DIDN'T LIKE THE RECIPE.
