1/3 cup chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic minced

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2.Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the meatballs. Cook meatballs, turning occasionally, until evenly browned. Drain and discard any excess grease.
