Thirty years ago I spent several weeks at a beautiful mountain lodge in Red River, New Mexico. When we arrived, the aroma of this dish greeted us. It was delicious, so I asked for the recipe and it's been a favorite ever since. Nowadays, my married daughter likes to prepare it for her family.
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
