Tomato-Basil Cream Sauce

Mix 1 jar (14 oz.) pasta sauce, 2 oz. cubed PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil in large skillet; cook on medium-low heat 3 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Add 16 hot meatballs; stir to evenly coat. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese before serving. Makes 4 servings, 4 meatballs and 1/3 cup sauce each.

Creamy Brown Gravy

Mix 1 jar (12 oz.) beef gravy, 1/2 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream, and 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley in large skillet; cook on medium-low heat 3 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Add 16 hot meatballs; stir to evenly coat. Makes 4 servings, 4 meatballs and 1/3 cup sauce each.

How to Freeze Meatballs

Loosely pack cooled meatballs in freezer-weight resealable plastic bags. Lay bags flat in freezer so meatballs freeze individually. Store up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator several hours or overnight before using as desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the only meatballs my kids will eat. These are the only meatballs my kids will eat. My son wants spaghetti every night. We love these. I gave my mother this recipe and now it's the only one she uses as well!!! They are easy to make and freeze really well. I make a lot and cook them and pop them into dinner sized amounts in freezer bags and use them on nights when time is short, just put the sauce (either the gravy recipe or the spaghetti sauce recipe) and the frozen meatballs into the crock pot. Dinner is ready when we are! Love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These came out excellent! These came out excellent! I just added a few easy things to bump up the flavor. I added "juiced/grated" onion, onion flakes, some chicken stock with the water, fresh (tube) parsley, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, some fine Italian bread crumbs (just to tighten it up a little) and some Tastefully Simple Rustic Herb seasoning. I baked them less time and finished them off on the stovetop in red sauce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used ground turkey and added a little bit of feta cheese.. I used ground turkey and added a little bit of feta cheese.. and 1 clove of garlic for extra flavor. These were the easiest, most delishes meatballs I've ever made. I served them with the creamy red sauce..and turned into meatball subs.. with some extra cheese on top. Wish I had made extra for freezing. Next time I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These really are the best. These really are the best. Why? Not only do they taste great they are impossibly easy to make. Everyone was totally surprised that the meatballs I used in a recipe of stroganoff were homemade. They were in awe that in the short time I produced dinner it included these very tasty meatballs...and so was I!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For a quick weeknight meal, this is a great option! For a quick weeknight meal, this is a great option! I tried the brown gravy sauce with the meatballs and served with some broccoli. I thought it was very good. I look forward to trying the other sauce next time. It's not gourmet, but for an easy, fast, family dinner with little clean up, this rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made the recipe but I guess my oven is old model, it took awhile for the meatballs to cook. I made the recipe but I guess my oven is old model, it took awhile for the meatballs to cook. I have to raise the temp for it to cook. I think the Stove Top just made it taste but I would like it meatier, next time I would just use the ground beef and not add the stove top.
