Loved this recipe. I added the tomato sauce I felt it needed it. Such a great bomb of flavor in your mouth. The flavors in meatball and sauce combine together so well.

Wow, this is absolutely delicious, wish we had leftovers! I tried it first without the tomato sauce but felt it needed more, so I added a 15 ounce can. I cut the salt in half and the pepper even more. Dienia, you've got a great recipe here, I can't wait to make it again!
