I would give this 5 stars for how it turned out, but only 4 for the actual recipe itself. I think a lot of the good flavors here are dependent on the spaghetti sauce used, as the sauce as written is rather bland. I used home made meat sauce from a friend that was very flavorful, but it was still dulled a little by the additional crushed tomatoes and tomato puree. I added some extra minced garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and oregano and it turned out great. I would do that again, or just use double spaghetti sauce instead of the extra tomatoes.
I was a little worried at first that there would be too many breadcrumbs in the meatballs, but actually it turned out perfectly. I mixed it very very well so there were no dry clumps and the meatballs held together great and were kept moist by the sauce. I used 90/10 meat and found that this prevented the sauce from being greasy.
