Mama Mia Meatball Taquitos- Taste of Home Tuesday

I can't believe it's Taste of Home Tuesday again already!   Things have been crazy here- we've bought a house and the moving frenzy has begun.   I've got about half the kitchen packed, which has made meal planning and cooking a fun challenge.   I've been relying heavily on old standbys and new dishes from the Simple & Delicious cookbook.

That's where I found this easy recipe.   I always make too many meatballs for spaghetti night, and I freeze them right in the sauce for quick subs, etc.   I let it defrost, removed the meatballs from the sauce and then continued with the recipe.  I used part skim ricotta because it's what I had on hand.     I warmed the sauce in small ramekins for dipping.   These were a big hit here, even with my son who isn't a huge meatball fan.    They'll make great game day snacks too.    Thanks to Lauren W for sharing the recipe!

  1. Adding these to my menu plan next week! I never thought of wrapping meatballs in a wrap like this! I could even make them vegetarian for my daughter!

    1. Me either! I've found so many fun, easy to put together recipes in the Simple & Delicious book. :)

  3. This on is on Sundays Menu in my house as well. Using homemade meatballs.

    1. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did! It would be fantastic with homemade, I'm hoping to make a batch of my mom's recipe soon. :)

  4. I love when I find a new twist on an old classic. This really mixes up the traditional meatball sub. They look delicious!

    1. It's funny because Jake won't eat meatball subs, but he loved these, had 2 helpings!

  5. Yum!! It's like meatball sub meets burrito/hot pocket! These would be a hit during football season too.
