Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs

I get an email every day from Mr. Food. On the 29th, I received one that included this recipe. I knew I had to try it. It looked so delicious....and it was! Both my son and I really enjoyed it. I served Ragu with it, spaghetti noodles and cheesy garlic bread. I will definitely make this one again. In fact, one of my Girl Scout moms spotted it and took my recipe home with her!

This was a good week night meal. It goes together fast. The longest part was rolling the meatballs and waiting impatiently for the meatballs to cook!
