    I also left the water off. Due to not being able to handle spicy foods, I didn't use the tomato sauce mixture, I topped it with 98 % fat free cream of mushroom soup mixed with light sour cream. Sorta like swedish meatballs. Yummo! - 6/24/11

    Super good! Very quick with stock ingrediants. I like to bake it in the thinner sauce so it does not dry out. Tastes great! Will serve with spaghetti sauce and pasta for the family. Definitely a saver. - 1/19/10

    very delicious and very filling! Only thing I did differently was leave the water out of the sauce (since someone said it was runny), added a touch of corn starch, and some splenda brown sugar. I prefer my things with a touch of sweetness. Perfect. - 3/18/09

    I used the huge can of crushed tomatoes with garlic, 1/2 cup of regular rice, and added Italian seasoning. Mixed 1/2 cup of water with the tomatoes, added seasonings, and poured over meatballs. Make sure you turn meatballs most of the way through, so that you don't get crunchy rice. - 1/4/11
