I don't know if using my "old fresh" tomatoes in place of the canned crushed ones had much to do with the flavor, but the red wine really adds to the sauce. (I used a Red German Dornfelder wine & cut back on the sugar.) I didn't follow the recipe exactly in "measurements", but used the listed ingredients to season the sauce & meatballs. I like the mozzarella cheese in the meatballs & did brown them in the oven before adding to the sauce. (I used a fine shredded mozz.) Next time, I want to try adding the raw meatballs to the sauce but will need a lower fat ground beef to be comfortable with that idea. Good recipe to adjust seasonings to your liking.
