Yes, yes....aaaaand yes. What’s not to love about all the things in this recipe? Especially when you combine them all into one great little ball of goodness? I wanted to try these because a friend of mine works in the Publix grocery store food prep area and she told me about making these and how good they were and how easy they were to throw together. So I hightailed it to Publix to buy a bag of their Italian meatballs to make this. Of course, you can make your own meatballs or buy a different brand....but I have to say, the ones from Publix are SUPER good. So if you’ve got a Publix grocery store near you, it’s worth the trip. IT Guy and I had these for dinner with some roasted veggies and I finished them off for lunch the next day. But of course serving at a party would be ideal! Super good, guys!!
