This recipe was absolutely the best... My husband ate his weight in it..It was easy as pie to make also, thanks for recipe...It worked for all of us....

This recipe is for making a quick meal, perhaps for working families.. Great. Make your own meatballs but its the same meal. This is just a guide for people who run out of ideas and get into a rut, making the same things all the time. Your post is not helpful.

If you can't cook fresh meatballs, stay out of the kitchen. Frozen products are mystery meats

sounds great...a new way to use leftover meatballs and sauce after a big spaghetti and meatball dinner.....

Well I use frozen turkey meatballs (a good quality brand) & it's wonderful!

I also prefer to make my meatballs from scratch. I don't put anything unnatural in mine, and I am particular about who touches my food.

Using frozen meatballs is a time saver but I prefer to control what goes into my food and would make my meatballs from scratch.
