“Made this yesterday, when I knew I would be too tired to cook by the time I got home from work. I used low-sodium items wherever available. Of course, this affects the taste, so if you don't like them, you can use regular. I am posting to find nutritional values, and to save for another day. My family liked it, so we will have it again! I just put 16 oz for these cans, but I don't know if they really are or not, I never look at the ounces. They are just standard sized cans. Zaar won't let me put my meatball package sizes, they are 24 count each.”
