New Topic Gas vs Electric Oven, Fan vs True convection - please help! in Cooking Q & A

I used Better Than Bouillon (1 tsp = 1 cube) in this, and I thought it was a smidge salty. I might only use 1/2 tsp next time. Other than that, it was really very good, and the hubby loved it. We both would have liked more gravy though... maybe with less meatballs next time, the ratio of gravy would be better."
