Great Meatballs!, Member amcharl

This recipe is wonderful and I've gotten lots of compliments on it. I just use Armour frozen meatballs and then warm up the meatballs in the sauce -- either in the microwave or on top of the stove. This last time I made it I also added a little bit of Major Grey's chutney. Wonderful!
