This is the perfect comfort food. This dish makes Debi very happy, she says that this sauce is probably the closest thing that I prepare that actually deserves to be called gravy. This is what the girls demand when they’re sick or overly tired. It’s quick and makes great leftovers (if I have leftovers, both my daughters expect it in their lunchbox the next day.) We don’t make them gigantic, we make meatballs that are about walnut- sized. We serve them over couscous, rice, and they work well with every side vegetable so they’re versatile. We like making them with turkey because they’re slightly softer and the flavor is a little milder and they stay more moist. Turkey meatballs are a favorite.
