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.
3 cup baking dish?
I would make the ORIGINAL recipe again.... When I originally bookmarked this recipe, it was different... a bigger size casserole. I found the original here: http://wegottaeat.com/janice.cook/recipes/taste-of-home-meatball-sub-casserole I'm not happy that the website changed the recipe rather than just making a page for a second recipe! Anyway, the first recipe was great. I didn't need to use all of teh cream cheese mixture though, and I used FF or low fat for all of the cheeses. My kids loved it too!
