This was a good recipe,I add summer squash and serve with wild rice. Next time I make it,I'm gonna serve with brown rice.


My whole family thought this was a great meal. It's rare to find a meal both kids and adults love, but this one did it.


I tried this recipe with ready made meatballs to shorten the time (aren't we all busy), also topped with cheese and crushed tortilla chips


...this is a great recipe, the first time i made it, it was great, but i tried to tweak it just a little bit! - instead of the evaporated milk, i used half a can of Cream of Chicken with a little bit of water - it taste sooo much better! - also i used Rice O Roni Long Grain Wild Rice instead of plain white and i have also served this over angel hair pasta...that was good too!


My family loves anything to do with meatballs and Italian food. I had nothing but great compliments from my family. They loved how it tasted and the texture. My twins ate it all up and told me more. The meal is also beautiful as well.


Tried this recipe, meatballs were great! the sauce... not so fond of it. It was not a hit with my family. I did add bbq sauce to the meatballs. That was good! Sorry.....


This really made a hit with my family. I served a tossed salad and garlic bread. It was a winner with the family and for me because it's so easy to make.
