Cheese Filled Meatballs with Steamed Vegetables

//Cheese Filled Meatballs with Steamed Vegetables

  Untitled  facebookzinstagramzpinterestz

Many years ago I worked with two amazing friends who lived together (Hello Jami and Tash if you see this!). I’m not exactly sure how this started but each Wednesday I would cook dinner and deliver it to them. I loved it as it meant I was cooking new things all the time. This was one of their favourites meals.

I have served it with steam vegetables for the photo but can be served with pasta, zoodles or rice.

    Hi Peta, is a teaspoon of meat stock OK if you don’t have a stock cube for the paste?
