Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs and Spaghetti


Spaghetti and meatballs are a go-to meal on busy nights, but this recipe takes it up a notch with mozzarella stuffed meatballs. Using string cheese makes prep super easy and few ingredients make it super fast.

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg
2 ounces mozzarella string cheese sticks, cut into 12 (1/2-inch) slices
