"I added a 1/4 cup of bread crumbs because while mixing the meat I felt that it needed something to hold the meat together."

"Hmmmm...,not so good. The sauce is way to runny. No matter how much longer I cooked the meatballs the rice did not soften. It was easy to prepare but also could use quite alot more seasoning.
