Saying my kids love these would be an understatement. Saying they're time consuming would be a lie. Not trying them yourself would truly be a shame. That all said, these really come together quick OR you can throw them in the crock pot and have 'em ready when you get home. I use frozen meatballs, but you could make your own as well. Throwing the sauce together and simmer time take about the same time as boiling up the long-grain white rice I serve this over. If you have a busy night coming - make these ahead, freeze and then cook up some minute rice while you're reheating.
