Spinach Dip–Stuffed Meatballs

Makes 15–18 meatballs

Recipe by Alvin Zhou for BuzzFeed Tasty


8 oz cream cheese

¼ cup cooked spinach

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 cup shredded mozzarella

½ lb ground beef

½ lb ground pork

1 large egg

¼ cup parsley

½ cup Italian breadcrumbs

1 tsp kosher salt

½ tsp pepper

2 cups marinara sauce

½ lb cooked fettuccine, or your favorite pasta


Mix cream cheese, spinach, garlic powder, and mozzarella until smooth.

Mix ground beef, pork, egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper until evenly combined. Take a golf ball-sized handful of the meatball mixture and press it flat in the palm of your hand. Place a spoonful of the spinach dip in the center of the meat and fold the edges over the dip, sealing it and rolling into a ball. Repeat with the remaining meat and dip.

In a pan over medium-high heat, sear meatballs for about a minute, then flip.

Add the marinara sauce and mix. Cook for about 15 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through and sauce is thick. Serve with fettuccine and enjoy!
