This dish was a favorite of Mom's. She passed the recipe on to me when I got married. Now it's become one of my family's favorites, too! It's delicious and satisfying, and calls for ingredients I almost always have on hand.

"This didn't come together for me as described in the instructions. The meatballs would not form and it was time consuming to prepare. As a busy mom I would probably not make it again. But it was good just not as expected."
