    We hosted a baseball game and I wanted a simple dish that I could make in advance to just heat up and serve and not be missing too much of the game. It was absolutely delicious and a big hit with our guests. I doubled the recipe and did everything according to the recipe. I served it with mashed potatoes and a Greek salad.

    Perfect! I kept the meatballs in the pan and baked the sauce at the end. It's delicious!

    Really delicious version of regular turkey meatballs. I like to make a batch and freeze them for dinner in a pinch.
