Made them last night. I really, truly wanted to follow the recipe exactly, but it was Italian night, sooo - I used a jar (gasp!!) of good-quality spaghetti sauce instead of the soup, and threw in about 1 1/2 tsp. of mixed Italian seasoning. After sauteing the meatballs I put them into the simmering sauce and finished them there. Turned out great, and a bit spicy, too. Oh, no need to use "instant" rice - there is enough cooking and simmering time to cook regular long grain rice all the way. In fact, I think instant rice might become soggy with this long-ish cooking time. Meatballs were a bit soft and kinda fell apart in cooking. I don't know how to fix this
