So, the next day I can whip up these rice balls while I cook spaghetti and heat up some tomato sauce. Delicious! And a rather quick job as well.
What is also great is that this dish also freezes very well. I recommend to plop some containers with leftover rice balls and tomato sauce in the freezer for use on another day.
Serve the spaghetti and top with the pasta sauce and a few of the rice balls. Garnish with some grated vegetarian cheese on top if you like.
