I was looking for a meatball recipe and thought I would try this because their are not a lot of ingredients. My husband, who hates meatballs because of the onion flavor, loved this recipe for meatballs. I will certainly be making these again. As a side note, I used an egg instead of egg beaters because I didn't have any in the kichen. The meatballs turned out great and were very moist.

The recipe for the sauce is extremely bland. Next time I would try spaghetti sauce instead of the 2 cans of tomato sauce and 1 can of diced tomato, maybe it would improve the taste (?). That being said, this is a very good recipe for meatball. The meatball was juicy and moist. I made slightly bigger meatball (only made 12 meatballs instead of the 18) and baked them 20 minutes instead of 15, and they were all juicy and tasty. All in all, I would make it again, but may find a different recipes for the sauce.
