I made these for a family reunion. I boiled the meatballs instead of frying them. It makes them less greasy, is easier to do and they hold their shape better. I put them in a crock pot, put the sauce over and cooked on low for 3 hours. Very yummy and I got rave reviews.

Oh yum Liane! We really loved these. I scaled the recipe down to six and used ground turkey. Altho the meatballs would make a really nice appy, which I will certainly do in the future, I made them for dinner and served them over mashed potatoes. I followed the recipe, however, next time I won't waste my vodka as I didn't think it added anything to the dish. Thanks so much!

I made this for my party and there was not a meatball left in the house! I only used one can of crushed tomatoes (two wouldnt fit in the pot) I made sauce first then added large 6lb bag of frozen meatballs from Costco and cooked on high for 4-5 hours then turned down to warm for the rest of the night.This will be my "dish" when invited to parties
