Expert Tips

Look for frozen meatballs in the grocery store's freezer case; use plain or Italian-seasoned meatballs. Cut large meatballs in half or in quarters before use.

Use Parmesan cheese in place of the feta; shred and measure 1/2 cup.

For extra Mediterranean flavor, prepare this recipe with sliced, pitted kalamata olives.
