I added Mozzerella cheese to the middle of my meatballs and I have to say this was one very delicious recipe! Left overs tasted just as good. Yum!

This is a quick and easy way to take Spaghetti up a notch (from a jar of sauce over noodles). The meatballs could use some doctoring, though. My hubby thinks garlic and salt should do it.

I made these per request of my husband. I've never had meatballs much and this was my first time to make them. We were very pleased! They saved well and we kept eating them throughout the week.
