Amazing meatballs and sauce!, August 13, 2006 - 06:49 PM
Reviewer: Magda S. from Edmonton Alberta Canada
Tastes absolutely delicious! Worth making again and again! Just a little tip - receipe as-is makes enough to feed a small army so either cut the recipe or freeze the majority. It does freeze well!
