This was delicious! I divided the mozzarella into 28 pieces, then rolled 28 meatballs to match. The process was a little messy, but well worth it. It cooked up perfectly in 2-1/2 hours on high. Served it on top of whole wheat spaghetti with veggies on the side. It was a hearty and tasty meal. My husband and two teen boys loved it. Will definitely make again! Read More
