Tammy's Review: 

I generally like spaghetti and meatballs, but this recipe is definitely the best I've had! The sauce combination is slightly sweet and not bitter, complementing the meatballs and pasta nicely. My rating: 9/10. With garlic bread, it's a 10/10. ;)


Please see my complete review above! Thanks! ~Tammy


I typically am not a big fan of red sauces because they can be bitter and upset my stomach. Tammy's homemade sauce is great because it is full of flavor but the sauce is very mild in regards to its acidity while retaining a zesty taste. The meatballs are also very large and enjoyable--and they can be frozen so you can use them easily for spaghetti or meatball sandwiches. This is a great core recipe and perfect for altering to ones specific preferences. And like Tammy said this is best served with hot garlic bread! Unfortunately the pictures we have up now don't do this recipe justice.


I just made these meatballs for my family's supper, and they were very well-received! I like the fact that they take so few ingredients and are very quick to prepare. I didn't follow the sauce recipe here because I had some other things on hand to use up...but the meatballs are something I'll definitely be making again. Thanks, Tammy!


Delicious and so fast to make! Just my kind of recipe; simple, but yummy. :)


These are our new go-to meatballs. They are simple to make and so so yummy! I love them for meatballs subs!
