So, let’s talk about something very near and dear to my heart, shall we?

Cheese.

You guys, I have a problem. I buy pounds (and pounds and pounds) of cheese at the store every week. Aaaaand, we eat it all.

I put cheese on everything.

So! I made a cheesy ravioli meatball skillet. There is cheese in the ravioli and cheese coating the whole dish. Because, yes. Cheese.

In addition to my obsession with cheese, I also have a sordid love affair going on with the all mighty meatball. I love meatballs! Remember my buffalo chicken meatball sandwiches? Gah. I make those meatballs all the time. So good!

But, obviously, I don’t always have time to be making my meatballs from scratch. I have zippity zero problems with the bags of frozen meatballs at the grocery store. In fact, I think they’re extra rad, so long as you get a good quality. I mean, there are a ton of uses for them and they’re easy to the peasy.

When a nice lady from Casa Di Bertacchi asked if I’d be interested in creating a recipe featuring their tender, all beef meatballs that are flavored with Italian spices and, of course, some Romano cheese, I said yes, please. Ship me all the meatballs. Everything you’ve got. I want them in my freezer. Chop chop. 

So, I only actually got one bag of their meatballs, which is totally okay, because they come in SIX POUND BAGS, which is fabulous. You’ll have plenty of meatballs just ready and waiting for you to put them to use in all kinds of yummy ways! You can find them at Sam’s Club for less than $15 a bag.

These meatballs are good all year long, of course, but I especially love meatball dishes in the fall and winter. They’re so cozy. Aaaaand, they even have a gluten free version.

So, I made a cheesy skillet dinner that is bursting with fresh ravioli and savory meatballs. You guys are going to love everything about this dish. Especially all the melty mozzarella cheese topping everything!
