Great recipe, huge hit with my kids and husband. I love that this is made totally with pantry staples that I have on hand. Made enough for a generous supper with about the same amount going into the freezer for another night.

Just finished making these to put in freezer for meatball subs when looking for a quick simple meal. Very simple recipe, a little different than my usual one when making sauce and meatballs. Made recipe exact with the exception of used romano cheese instead of parmesan. Will definitely add to my recipe box!

Gosh, I really liked these! They were easy to make and the taste was delightful. I used them for meatball subs, so I make them on the small side so that they would fit in the buns that I had. Actually, they were so good that I ate them alone without the bread and marinara sauce. They were just as good the next day as leftovers, too. Thank you!

Easy to make and my family loved them. I substituted ground pork for the ground beef and they tasted great!

These meatballs-were relatively easy to make, and they tasted great. I added them to a marinara sauce. I love that they are cooked via baking rather pan-frying, as this is a much simpler and less messy preparation. They are well seasoned, too.
