This sounds delicious just as it is, but I changed it up a little by using frozen meatballs (as previously suggested), using cream of mushroom soup (instead of cream of chicken), and adding a small can of mushrooms. YUM!

Whole family enjoyed this dish. Was easy to put together, I too used frozen meatballs. Am going to make this for my church buffet this weekend. A keeper in my book!

Just finished with eating this dinner. Very easy to fix and this particular time I made it even easier by using frozen meatballs. My husband gives this a 9 of 10 stars, so I will be making again.

Made this last night, it was great. The family loved it. It was simple and easy. I did however use frozen meatballs to make it even easier. I was pressed for time. It was still great. Thanks for sharing!

My family loved this no leftovers. Like cheesy potatoes with the addition of meatballs.

I took a pkg. of ground beef out of the freezer this AM and immediately came to the computer to go online with TOH for "HELP". I don't think I could pay my grand kids to eat another bite of spaghetti and a meatloaf just didn't provide the bells and whistles I was looking for. TOH and their miracle workers who provide us with great recipes have never failed me. This is on tonights menu and is safely saved in my recipe box. Thanks TOH and especially JoAnn for sharing!

IL take a lot of potluck items to church. This sounds great but I would brown the meatballs in my steamer in the microwave to make them almost fat free. I might also make meatballs from ground turkey to cut down on fat.
