    Have been making these for over 50 years (since I was a kid) and have found that if you let the meatballs sit for awhile before cooking, they taste even better. I keep some made up and freeze them for days I don't feel like doing anything. - 3/26/09

    If you cook the rice first you can leave out the tomato sauce and the meatballs should keep their shape better. - 3/26/09
