    My husband and 14 month old son absolutely loved these meatballs. I made a little angel hair pasta instead of the rice and added a little orange juice to the sauce, just cause I was in the mood. This will be a staple in our house! - 1/7/09

    Tasty! Hubby liked it. I used pre-made frozen meatballs and added a Sweet and Sour seasoning packet. Really easy and quick. Thanks for sharing! - 10/18/08
