Meatballs in Red Wine Sauce

These meatballs are so delicious.  I have served them as an appetizer at parties as well as for a main course.  Just add a salad, pasta, bread, and wine and you are set.  The sauce is very easy and you can add any flavors you or your family like.  Feel free to experiment!
