Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with your favorite steamed vegetable to round out the meal.
Shortcut
Use a small ice cream scoop with a release mechanism to easily shape meat mixture into balls. The scoops lets you shape the meatballs without using your hands so there's less chance of spreading bacteria from the raw meat around your kitchen.
How to Make Sauce Thicker
Remove meatballs from pan and keep warm. Bring sauce to a boil until it reaches desired consistency.
