    I love this recipe! It is my go to recipe when time is short and I don't really feel like cooking. It's easy but tastes great!

    This dish was so easy to make and the brown sugar gave it that little sweetness with the savory!

    We made 1/2 the recipe and tweaked it somewhat. For the noodles we used "No Yokes." We also added about 6 or 7 sliced button mushrooms as well as two tablespoons dry red wine. It turned out well. Next time we might add a little more brown sugar. The sweetness was very subdued (probably a result of our additions).

    This is very similar to what I make from time to time. I use whole wheat noodles, and turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's. If Janma lives nearby a TJ's, try these meatballs. I love them. They also have regular beef meatballs also.

    This recipe lends itself well to a single serving by using only a few meatballs and half a jar of gravy. Mushroom gravy and a llittle red wine are also good add-ins.
