Set aside until the Tomato Sauce is prepared and simmering.
      2. Heat a large skillet to high temperature (no oil or butter needed), add the meatballs and brown them evenly all around for about 3 minutes. This is just to seal the meatballs and to give them a nice browning. The rest of the cooking will be done in the oven. Set aside in large oven proof glass baking dish.
