I was surprised at how good they were... was worried about the rice not cooking, but it was perfect!

Made these for dinner tonight, my family loved them. I served over whole wheat pasta and had broccoli on the side. Made my sauce from scratch with chopped whole tomatos, beef stock, red peppers, garlic, onion and mushrooms. YUMMY!

My 9 yr old son loved the balls. I put in a little BBQ to sweeten it up. Very easy to make.
