We found this idea somewhere recently and just before Purim, we tried it (had to avoid the post Purim black-out dates!). It actually was pretty good!
We took some matzah balls and put them in a pan. We seasoned them with the usual array of Italian type spices. We then covered them with a really good pasta sauce and baked them in the oven for 40 minutes.
Our guests were either very polite, or they really liked it. (Could go either way- they all said they liked it, but no one asked for seconds…. ) On the other hand, we liked it.
