  • All of the meatballs held their cheese but one did lose some of it. I felt this recipe was great except the sauce was missing something as a spice. Very easy recipe. I would make this again. I think it was the garlic. Needed more garlic. I also think this would be a great crockpot recipe. - 3/20/12
