Ann's Cheese Dumplings

My friend Ann is one of the best cooks I know.   I wanted to share her dad's recipe for cheese dumplings - these are terrific!

 Cheese Dumplings

3/4 c parmesan cheese (use the canned Kraft stuff in the green can.   The real stuff doesn't work)
1 egg
4 cups tomato  sauce she uses canned diced tomatoes liquified in the blender
1 zucchini cut into chunks
1 yellow squash cut into chunks

Knead egg and cheese together until you have a dough like mixture.  You want it to easily be able to form one inch balls.  Not too wet, not too dry, they should easily form into balls.

Heat the sauce until it is lava hot.   It works better if the sauce is slightly on the watery side.

Drop the balls in a few at a time after a minute or two they should bob up to the surface and swell up a bit.

When all the cheese balls have popped up add the squash chunks and cook until the squash is tender.
