I didn't make the spaghetti sauce, but I did make the meatballs. I have never made meatballs w/o putting a little chopped onion in them. I followed your recipe and added about 1/4 cup finely chopped onion. They were a real hit; had wonderful flavor. Next time I will try the sauce, too.Thanks.
Bland. The sauce didn't cling to the noodles since it was so thin. If I did happen to make it again I would add some tomato paste to thicken the sauce and I would add more seasoning to both the sauce and meatballs. The only plus to this dish was it didn't make me feel heavy like most spaghetti dishes do.
