Bertolli Pasta and Meatballs

Pasta and Meatballs! Costco had the sauce on sale, so we had four jars of this. Life has been a little hectic, so we were looking for something we could throw together super quickly and this won the draw. It tasted very good and was fast to prepare. Doesn't quite compare to the homemade sauces, but it's worth it for the time saved.
