Reviews for Meatballs with Spaghetti Sauce
"I used diced tomatoes instead of whole. It wasn't bad, but a little too acidic for me, with all those canned tomato products."
"Sauce was good. Did not use meatball recipe. Did not use whole tomatoes"
"I just made the sauce, it is delicious. It gets better the next day. The only thing I did different was put it thru the food processor. What is the calorie count just for the sauce??"
