      This was a great, quick week-day meal. A little messy, we ended up eating ours with a fork but it was a hit and even reheated well the next day in the microwave.

      This was great. Easy and terrific taste. My son had his without the spinach and I had mine with. I used meatballs that I had made and had frozen. Messy and yummy just like they should be! THANKS! We will be making these again.
