    sounds great, I always cook my meatballs in the oven that way you don't have the added fat of frying, little pam and 350 for 10-20 min depending on size. Will save quite a few calories and lots of fat! Can't wait to try - 2/1/09

    Very Good
    I liked this. I doubled the amount of gravy by adding a can of cream of chicken soup, water, and another packet of turkey gravy mix. Raises the calories, yes, but my family likes gravy! Very good. - 2/25/09

    Made this tonight. The Meatballs are delicious(5 star), the sauce i found to be just ok, it seemed to be missing something. - 2/11/09

    WoW! These meatballs were fantastic! We put them over rigatone noodles, and it was so good! I'll definately file this away under comfort food! - 2/10/09

    The recipe was fantastic. My only complaint was that there wasn't enough gravy to cover the noodles I served them on. I would double the gravy recipe and do the meatballs the same. They turned out great! Thank you! - 2/6/09
