Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 1 1/2 cups to italian dry bread crumbs
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella, divided into 12 pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 jar s of your favorite red sauce
  • 2 lb spaghetti, cooked al dente

Preparation

In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef, ground pork, parmesan, eggs, salt, pepper, garlic, basil, parsley and dried oregano. Add bread crumbs 1/2 cup at a time until mixture is not to wet and can be formed into balls easily. Form mixture into 12 balls using your thumb to press a hole in the center. Insert a piece of the fresh mozzarella into the hole and close the hole by pushing the meatball mixture around it to secure the mozzarella inside each ball.

Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and drizzle olive oil into it. Add meatballs and cook until just browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer meatballs into a slow cooker. Pour red sauce over the meatballs and cook on LOW for approximately 5 hours. Serve the stuffed meatballs and sauce over spaghetti.
