    I have only made the meatball portion of this recipe. we love them. we've served them as a meal or as an appetizer. most recently i made them for a graduation party. everyone loved them. I add 3-4 links of italian turkey sausage which adds a nice kick to them and a bit more flavor. Easy and simple to make. I have made them so often that at this point i can make them in my sleep!

    Wonderful meatballs! I follow the exact directions. These are the only ones I make. I usually double or triple the batch and then freeze them to use over the course of one month. I have never made the sauce, so the rating is just for the meatballs..

    i love the flavor of this recipe, it has just enough spice! instead of using white bread i buy the italian breadcrumbs and instead of plain canned tomatoes i use the roasted canned tomatoes... this is a fabulous recipe and so very easy! if u dont want to use all of the meatballs u can freeze the rest

    The meat balls were pretty good. The sauce in this recipe lacked flavor and was not rich and thick like it looks in the picture.

    The meatballs are fabulous. Instead of white bread, I used a mixture of panko and whole-grain breadcrumbs. The sauce is a little bit on the thin side, but I added the leftover spaghetti to the sauce and it had the perfect consistency the next day. I thought it might be a little too spicy for the kids, but they loved it.

    2/2/13 Turned out nicely. Allergic to tomatoes, but husband and guests liked it. They said it had a nice kick. Kids liked meatballs. Added garlic to meatballs (extra) and sauce.

    I only made the meatball portion of the recipe and I was really happy with the results. I did make a few changes though. I substituted panko for the breadcrumbs and I used a mixture of 1/2 ground pork, 1/2 ground beef. I also added chopped onions and extra garlic for more flavor. I doubled the recipe and froze meal-sized portions of the meatballs for future dinners. I loved being able to cook them in the oven because there was so much less mess than I would have had if I had cooked them on the stovetop.

    I didn't make the sauce, just the meatballs. It was easy and delicious. Yum. Will definitely make these again.
