A tad to sweet...

I made this dish for my boyfriend because he loves Spaghetti and meatballs. We both enjoyed the dish but found it to be a little too sweet.

DEVILISHLY DEVINE CREAMY TOMATO SAUCE WITH MEATBAL

THIS IS A WONDERFULLY EASY RECIPE, MY HUSBAND AND I ARE BOTH DISABLED, AND IT IS NICE TO ONLY HAVE TO COOK ONCE FOR 2 OR MORE MEALS..TRY IT YOU WILL LOVE IT.....

PERFECT!!

My husband has wanted me to make meatballs and sauce for years. I saw this recipe and decided to try it. I like the idea of baking the meatballs. They cooked evenly. I thought it might make a mess in the oven but did not. I used 1 pound turkey and 1 pound pork sausage. The store only had 1 package turkey sausage. I think I will just adjust the recipe to 1 turkey and 1 pork. The sauce was creamy due to the milk. I like the flavor, it mellowed the tomato in the sauce. We also liked the addition of the pepper flakes. Thanks much!
