3 cup baking dish?? Did you mean a 3 quart baking dish?

MY REVIEW

Yum, yum, yum! This was a huge hit at the "hotdish" potluck at our church. There was virtually nothing left to bring home; I don't think my husband even got a serving before it was all gone. I probably won't make this too often, as we're trying to eat healthier, but for special splurges it definitely is worth it.

I too had to hunt down this recipe on the Internet. I'm glad it's here at TOH so I could save it. I have made this two times before. Each time I've used different sauces made by the same company, Balducci's out of Chicago. One sauce is a Vodka sauce and the other had a bit of a kick in flavor, it was their Arrabbiata sauce. This dish is easy to prepare and delicious to eat. Everyone I have served it to went back for seconds and thirds. I have also embellished the meatballs by using grass fed beef, ground pork and Italian sausage mixed. I also use a 9 x 13. Any meatballs left over are a bonus for a future dish.

Jill the original recipe is awesome, you're right!  Your post sent me on a hunt to find it & I did!  They've renamed the recipe to Baked Simple Meatball Stroganoff.
