Cool; wrap in heavy-duty foil; label and freeze. To serve, thaw loaves and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or til heated through.
  3. FOR MEATBALLS: Shape into meatballs (using small cookie scoop if available) and place on broiler pan so grease can drain while cooking. Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

To serve, thaw and reheat with your choice of sauces.
