Cheesy Meatball Rice Skillet

This has been on my Tasty Tuesday list to try for a while. I really only like meatballs now with the meatball/meatloaf mix(beef, veal, pork) and I haven't been able to find it! I found some last week so I picked it up with this recipe in mind!

Cheesy Meatball Rice Skillet-adapted from Eat At Home
20 meatballs, cooked
1 onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp basil, dry
1/2 tsp dry oregano
1 cup rice
2 cups water
1 pkg frozen veggies(I used mixed)
2 cups 6 blend italian shredded cheese

Mix together all the ingredients expect for cheese and veggies. Bring to a boil and lower heat to a simmer. Cook until rice is cooked through.(This will depend on the rice you use). Once rice is cooked, add in veggies and stir. Let sit for 5 mins. Stir in cheese until throughly melted.

**This took FOREVER to cook...I think it was the brown rice I used. Next time I'll use already cooked rice or even white rice. It was delicious none the less! It would be quick and easy with minute rice and kid friendly too!
