Italian Rice Balls

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Nasseh

These Italian rice balls are a great favorite of children & adults alike. Italian cheese blends consists of Mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan, Romano, Fontina, & Asiago. I have noticed that sometimes the last 2 cheeses are not included. I have adjusted the recipe according to 2Bleu's comments. Thanks for the input...
