Meet the Cook: I've enjoyed cooking ever since I was very young. This recipe's one I spotted in a local hospital auxiliary cookbook. When I gave it a try, my husband loved it, and I have had lots of compliments from the guests I've served it to, too.

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
“I rely on this recipe when we have family visiting,” writes Marilyn Shehane from Colorado Springs, Colorado. “I put it in the slow cooker in the morning and when we get home from sightseeing all day, it’s ready!”
I don't recall where I got this recipe, but I've been making it for 40 years. The recipe card is covered with food stains as a result of so much use. I like the addition of horseradish, which gives the stroganoff that extra zing.
Lara Taylor of Virginia Beach, Virginia is a busy home-schooling mother of two and says: “Everyone looks forward to this wonderful meal! I can let it simmer while I do other things and it fills my home with a delightful aroma. Definitely a family favorite.”
