    diamonds4heather's Note:

    These were always a childhood favorite of mine and my brothers. Serve these over rice, with a nice greek salad and some pita bread. The sour cream might sound strange, but it is a must when you eat these meatballs. YUMMMMY!

      These were different. I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce since it didn't specify but I'm thinking that perhaps it should have been a 15 oz can. The sour cream did add a new dimension to the flavor.
