i didn't like the sauce - something about the tomato soup/ cranberry sauce combination was off.

This is a great recipe! My whole family loves it. Even my grandchildren. The tangy sauce really adds a lot of flavor to the meatballs. It is so easy to fix. Will fix this again and keep the recipe handy. Thanks for the recipe.
