  1. I really enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I used cayenne pepper instead of chilli. Being first time making this I made larger meatballs as I wasn’t sure if they would stay together – they did! – perfectly. Going to try making smaller ones next time. Definitely be having this again and may also try it with a different type of cheese. Served with spaghetti this time – would also be great with mash.

  2. Must say I did enjoy the flavors but using baby bocconcini I just couldn’t taste it. Will try again maybe using a differant cheese ?

  3. I accidently bought normal size bocconcini so had to cut them in quarters. I also added garlic with the tomato soup and used two tins instead of one as there was not much liquid. Looked to be a bit high and started to stick so after an hour on HIGH I turned the slow cooker to LOW for another 2 1/2 hours instead of 4 hours on high. Was nice I had mine with spaghetti and my husband had vegetables.
