  • 1 teaspoon garlic

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parmesan cheese (chopped)


  • For the Meatballs Preheat oven to 350 degrees F Add all meatball ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined.

  • Roll out dough in between 2 sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin.
  • Make it into 2 large rectangular shapes (each one to fit the size of your cookie sheet) that are about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Remove the top layer of parchment and cut dough into 12 square-ish parts (6 per rectangle) using a rolling pizza cutter.
  • Leave on bottom layer of parchment and transfer to a cookie sheet.
  • Bake for each rectangle for 1 minute just to make it a bit easier to work with but not enough to cook it.

  • Wrap each meatball with the square of crust it is sitting on, pressing it into a ball shape and setting the wrapped meatball seam side down back on the cookie sheet.

  • Microwave or simmer spaghetti sauce until warm and add 1/4 cup to the bottom of 4 bowls.
  • Add 3 wrapped meatballs to each bowl and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan
