Mozzarella Balls

Nothing like moth balls.   Got fresh mozzarella pearls and covered them with Italian sausage and baked at 350 for about 30 min.  Made a simple tomato sauce and poured over angel hair pasta….YUM

IMG_1480I used about 1.5 lbs of bulk Italian sausage.  Just the regular…not the hot.  That may be next time.  It made 2 dozen little balls.  The “pearls” are 2 1/2 grams according to the packaging.

I sauteed onions, minced garlic and some yellow pepper, then added a can of diced tomatoes and sliced mushrooms.  Salt and Italian seasoning to taste and let it simmer most of the moisture out.  If you get side tracked and it gets a little dry….add some of the pasta water.  Add the mozzarella balls and pour over pasta.  Just the thing for a rainy gray day.


They would also be great for a snack without the sauce.
