There is something so comforting about meatballs. The sauce these are cooked in adds so much sweet flavor to them that a little goes a long way. My family loves these served over rice. It's such an easy meal to put together (as long as you plan a head of time to allow cooking). And to make it even easier, try the Ready Rice that cooks in the microwave for 90 seconds. These orange bags have become a staple in our house.
