I make this sauce all the time for parties. I use frozen meatballs and cook it in the crock pot for simplicity.

This a very tasty meatball. The packaged stuffing mix added great flavor. I made this actually as written. I have made it many times now. I also have froze the meatballs and added sauce on serving day.Then served in a slow cooker for a brunch.
