Three-Cheese Meatball Mostaccioli
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min.
This was a DELICIOUS recipe. I would definitely make this again. Even my picky eaters enjoyed it along with my husband. The brown sugar gives it a sweet hint but not overbearing sweet taste. The only modifications I made was that I used minced garlic instead of powder, I added season salt to the meat, and used mozzarella cheese and grated parmsean because I couldn't find the other cheese. VERY GOOD!
Pretty good dinner. I made a half recipe of this. I used fresh garlic and half a shallot. For the sauce, I used Bertoli tomato basil. Since I had a pound of ground beef and only used half, I rolled the other half into meatballs. I added fresh basil and parmesan cheese to them. After 40 minutes of baking, the meatballs were fully cooked. I think there was a little too much brown sugar that it muted the cheese and sauce flavors. I made this with swiss-onion bread (on this site).
This was hearty and tasty. Had lot of leftovers which is a good thing. The flavor improved as it sat in the fridge. Will be making this again.
Party of 6 loved it for New Year's Eve. Plenty of leftovers, too!
Really good when you are looking for more than a standard spaghetti and meatballs. It does make quite a bit but it looks like it would halve nicely for next time when I make it.
Simple & very tasty. I halved the recipe as there is only 2 0f us. Enough for leftovers.
This was very good. Just be sure to choose good meatballs. The ones I bought were not that good.
I thought this was a very good recipe. The only thing I might change is maybe just use a little bit less sugar. I thought it was just a little sweet. Other than that I thought it was good.
To "chsw" question. No there is "not" a problem with the recipe. Yes, it states to cook the ground beef because there is crumbled ground beef in addition to the packaged Italian meatballs which are added on top last. Did you read the entire recipe? Unfair to rate a 3 because you did not "read" through the entire recipe. The recipe is a quick, easy, filling and tasty family meal. I always add fresh garlic to these dishes in place of the garlic powder. It lends for an amazingly fresh burst of garlic flavor. Just complete your meal by adding a garden salad and French bread. Enjoy!
Does anyone see a problem with this recipe. It is called Three-Cheese "Meatball" Mostaccioli but in the recipe is says " cook beef and onion 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles".
