    Perfect! this will be my go to red sauce forever! I'm going to fry my balls in good olive oil then finish cooking them in the sauce till done.

    Very good, simple basic flavor.
    Turned out great, I slow cooked the sauce for like 6 hours, and I left my feta cheese in chunks, and the meatballs turned out incredible!
