Meatball Skillet Dinner

Jolayne Cooper


I don't know where this recipe came from, but my mother made it when I was growing up. I have added a little kick of heat by adding cayenne, but otherwise it is the same one she made. I serve it over rice or noodles and we love it. It is a quick meal if you have frozen meatballs to use. Frozen meatballs aren't quite the same as the homemade variety, but they work in a pinch.
