Excellent recipe! Best spaghetti and meatballs I've ever made. I think not baking the meatballs before putting them in the sauce made them more moist. I altered the recipe as a few others suggested, and substituted one can of whole tomatoes, one can of crushed tomatoes, one small can of sauce, and the tomato paste for the tomato ingredients as listed in the recipe. Another change I made was to cut the salt in half. Even a teaspoon seemed like a lot to me and in the future I'd try a half a teaspoon. Most canned tomatoes have plenty of salt in them, unless you are lucky and can find the low sodium kind. I also think the 1/4 cup of oil could be reduced to a two tablespoons, if desired. I will try that next time. Also, after sauteing the onions and garlic, I put all of the other ingredients together and simmered them for a bit. Then, since I didn't have enough time to simmer on the stove, I just popped everything in the crock pot on low and left it for three hours so I could go out. The meatballs were cooked and everything was delicious. Great recipe!
