Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have never made meatball cacciatore,even though I think it sounds great. I like mushrooms and black olives and even the onions. The problem is that my family doesn't care for that stuff, especially the onions. I thought about trying to make it with out the onions, but I don't know if they would go for it still. I think it looks really good.

Love this recipe, I prepared it las night and were amazing .
