Rice Meatballs Recipe

rice-meatballsWhen my husband and I were dating, would would sometimes eat at my now in-laws house for dinner.  I remember one night my mother-in-law made rice meatballs for dinner and they were yummy!  After we were married, I have collected a number of recipes from my mother-in-law and this is one of our family’s favorites!  It’s one of my go to recipes when I need something that’s quick to fix.  I serve it over noodles or rice with a side of veggies.
