    Debber's Note:

    Winter supper at its best! Comfort food with a tantalizing sauce & lovely meatballs. Get the kids in on the act, rolling meatballs is fun and gooshy (okay, everyone, "Wash your hands first!"). Thanks to Taste of Home's Quick Cooking 2000 year book for their inspiration.

      I had to use 1 and 1/2 lbs of meat in order to get enough meatballs. Using only 1 lb gave me 16 meatballs and I really need 24-ish to fill the dish. I also made the meatballs half ground beef and half ground pork, but that's just a flavor preference.
