This recipe is based upon an Italian family recipe, modified for working or busy moms like me, who need something homemade but quick. While cooking the sauce, prepare a fresh salad and garlic bread to complete the meal. Serve hot over your favorite pasta.

  • Heat marinara sauce to a simmer in a 2-quart pot over low heat.

  • Roll beef mixture with your hands to form meatballs. Drop into the simmering sauce. Add sugar and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring gently and regularly, until meatballs are no longer pink and sauce is heated through, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Makes great leftover meatball sandwiches.

You may use slow cooker instead; 3 to 4 hours on Low.
