Add meatballs to simmering tomato sauce. Cook covered, stirring occasionally for 5 min. Uncover and turn meatballs; cook until meatballs are cooked through, 6 to 8 min. Remove meatballs with a slotted spoon. Simmer sauce uncovered, until very thick for about 5 more min. Pour in cream; bring to a light boil. Return meatballs to sauce; heat through.

Try ground veal instead of ground pork or a combo of beef, pork and veal.
