When you're looking for an Italian fix without all the carbs, look no further than these mozzarella-stuffed meatballs. Bake these casserole style, topped with zesty marinara sauce and even more cheese! This is a delicious dish to make for a kid's birthday party or for any celebratory dinner with family and friends.
Although the recipe below calls for only ground beef, doing a 50/50 blend with ground pork would give the meatballs an extra depth of flavor. If you prefer, top the casserole with provolone, cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese instead of more mozzarella. Make this whole dinner low-carb by serving it with a green salad or zucchini noodles. This high-protein/low-carb dish works well for anyone on a Keto, Atkins or other low-carb lifestyle. Plus, it takes less than an hour to make, so you can get out of the kitchen faster.
