Meatball Sub Casserole

♥ Beginner

Click here for original recipe.
Meatball Sub's are not my favorite food. But the kids sure do love them, and so does the Hubs. So we tried this recipe awhile back, and everyone really liked it - so it's hung around a bit. Maybe your family will like it too.

What you'll need:
* 1 Loaf of Italian Bread, cut into 1" slices
* 8 oz. Cream Cheese, Softened
* 1/2 C. Mayonnaise
* 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
* 1/4 tsp. Pepper
* 2 C. Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
* 1lb. Fully Cooked Frozen Meatballs, Thawed
* 1 (28oz) Jar of Pasta Sauce
* 1 C. Water

How it's done:
1. Preheat oven to 350*F, and arrange sliced bread in the bottom of an un-greased 9x13 Pyrex.

2. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, mayo, italian seasoning, and pepper. Spread the mixture over the bread slices.

3. Sprinkle 1/2 C Mozzarella cheese over the top.

4. Mix together the pasta sauce, water, and meatballs and gently spoon them over the cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.

5. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes.

I like to serve this with the remaining Italian bread as garlic bread, and a side salad.
