The sauce was just wonderful. First time out I didn't have any wine on hand, but it was very good. Made it again with wine and it just blew me away. The only changes we made were to substitute Splenda for sugar and for the meatballs we sliced string cheese into small rounds and hid them inside the meatballs. The recipe says it serves 6 but we served 8 good eaters, with a small salad on the side. Simply a great meal.
I think there is an error in the seasoning and wine amounts. Sauce was Very strong. Meatballs saved this recipe.
The sauce part of this recipe was really good although I had to use a large 28oz can of crushed tomatoes. The meat balls made 12 balls, about golf ball size - I had to add a splash of milk to get the meat and cheese mixture to hang together. The meatballs might have had a better texture if I had added to milk to the bread crumbs and egg rather than at the end. Thanks for a good recipe.
Absolutely amamzing meatballs. Very easy to make. I use it with a jar of prego and a jar of alfredo sauce mixed together. I just cook the meatballs in this as called for. They are out of this world. Also great heated up the next day.
I always buy a large pkg of pork neck bones. I roast them at 350 degrees for 1 hour & freeze them. When I'm making sauce I wrap a few in cheesecloth & add to the sauce. This makes the sauce even better.
Great recipe, although I didn't have wine on hand, just added water and tasted great. I'm anxious to make it with the red wine. Looking forward to making it again soon!
This was the most AMAZING sauce and I make a pretty darn good sauce myself! The wine was the PERFECT complement to the sauce. It made the taste very authentic to Italian. Meatballs were a huge hit too. Guess I will be making this sauce from now on and not mine - :) Thanks for sharing!
