    Except for the shortening...I use butter or margerine and fresh garlic cloves while cooking the onions...I do sprinkle the meat balls with garlic salt and pepper while browning them...and I use Italian style stewed tomatoes...not diced as they cook down! And the secret ingrediant my G/ma taught me use about two teaspoons of sugar to take the acid taste outta the tomatoes!

    Sometimes I use fresh garlic, too. And olive oil instead of shortening. And, if I'm lazy, I use canned diced tomatoes intead of chopping fresh ones.
