  • I grew up on this recipe. (One of 2 things my mom trusted to make for the family.) I like this more of just a dish and not formed into meatballs.. mostly because mine fell apart easily. - 4/14/16

  • Wonderful dish! When plating, I broke each meatball in half, poured the sauce over them and sprinkled them with parmesan cheese. Also added some parmesan to the meat mixture before forming into balls. Outstanding! - 9/2/11

  • This was a really tasty recipe! I used ground turkey and did add some Parmesan to hold it together better. I also baked in the oven instead of cooking in a skillet. Definitely a keeper! - 12/15/09
