We love cheese and especially fresh mozzarella because it is so soft and juicy. One day we came across the idea of meatballs with a core of melted mozzarella cheese, it just sounded so delicious that we had to try it out. This recipe for meatballs with mozzarella is simple to cook and has a great taste – we have adjusted the ingredients back and forth and this is now our favorite meatball recipe. We normally serve these meatballs together with our homemade pasta and our homemade tomato sauce. I you are in hurry you can just buy a tomato sauce and some pasta from the super market – then you have yourself a super delicious and easy dinner.
