  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Unroll crescent dough and cut each triangle in half. You should have 16 halves.
  3. Place about 1/2 tablespoon of shredded cheese into one of the triangles. Top with a meatball. Wrap the dough around the meatball gently stretching as needed. Pinch the seams closed and roll into a ball in your hands.
  4. Roll the wrapped meatballs into the remaining cheese and roll in your hands to smooth and help cheese stick. Sprinkle each with a pinch of italian seasoning.
  5. Place on a parchment lined pan and bake 12-14 minutes or until browned. Serve hot with tomato sauce.
