Spaghetti and meatballs are true comfort food that bring back childhood memories. My family can't get enough.
My son made most of this dish by himself, with me a relief cook just jumping in when he needed it. I asked him to increase the garlic in the sauce to a few more minced cloves. There were no other changes made. The sauce was simple and meant to not overpower the meatballs, which were obviously the star of this dish. My youngest boy was the only one who liked them. Everyone else thought they were oddly sweet and the grahams didn't pair well with the flavor of the parmesan. The graham flavor was really out of place with the homemade marinara. I appreciate the ease and playfulness of this dish and my son and I had fun making it together but it really wasn't a hit with all of us. I think the meatballs would have been better with a cream-based sauce (think swedish meatballs, maybe) or even as BBQ meatballs? - 16 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was the first time I have ever made meatballs. I was intrigued by the use of graham cracker crumbs in this recipe and thought I would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised by the smooth texture and the flavor. However, I was not overly impressed with the sauce. It was acceptable, but next time, I will probably use my own. - 04 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
We loved the meatballs... they had a nice taste, not to overwhelming. Will definately make them again - 31 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
