  • 1 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

TEST KITCHEN TIP For meatballs, pat the beef mixture into a square about 1 inch thick. Then cut into 1-inch squares and roll each square into a meatball.

"This was fantastic, though I did make some small changes. I replaced half of the water with worcestershire sauce, the mozzarella with an Italian blend cheese, and added some garlic. It was a big hit."
