Spaghetti and Meatballs

3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 tsp of salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sacue
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
bunch parsley, rough chop
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
Mozzarella cheese
Tomato sauce of choice

Mix the first 7 ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Add to ground beef until just incorporated, do not over mix. Using a metal spoon, scoop out mixture in the size meatballs you'd prefer. Before forming into a ball, place a small amount of mozzarella cheese in the middle, form the ball around so that all of the cheese is completely covered. You know have three cooking options, choose whichever works best with your time frame.

1. Cook the meatballs and sauce in a crock pot on low for 6-7 hours.
2. Brown the meatballs slightly, leaving a pink/red center, then place in the crock pot with sauce and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
3. Brown the meatballs until almost completely cooked, place the meatballs on a foil covered baking pan, bake for approximately 8 minutes on 350.

Serve over pasta of choice, yum, yum, yum and SO easy! I think hiding the Mozzarella inside the meatball was great, it kept it super moist and really, can you ever have too much Mozzarella?
