  3. Cut the cheese into 20 cubes.
  4. Put a small indent in the meatball and then enclose the cheese in the meatball.
  5. Put a little oil in a saute pan. Add the meatballs and brown on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside while you make the sauce. (If you don't you risk the cheese oozing out)
