We often think of meatballs with spaghetti, but they are equally delicious in a variety of sauces such as Sweet-and-Sour .
To freeze meatballs, place in a single layer on a baking sheet until frozen then transfer to a covered container or freezer bag. To quickly reheat, place the frozen meatballs in a casserole dish, cover and microwave at Medium (50%) until defrosted.
