If you like meatball subs, you'll love this tangy casserole—it has all the rich flavor of the popular sandwiches with none of the mess. Italian bread is spread with a cream cheese mixture, then topped with meatballs, spaghetti sauce and cheese. Served with a green salad, it's a hearty meal the whole family enjoys. —Gina Harris, Seneca, South Carolina

"The meatballs were really dry and not very good--overall, just not something we liked at all!"

"I have made this recipe for years, we love it. Leave out the water, use your own sauce. Use the good bread, we prefer unseeded. This used to be called meatball sub casserole, everything is better with mini meatballs. A salad or vegetable and you are all set."
