Meatball Sub Casserole

Made this more than a couple weeks ago so here we go:

 

Meatball Sub Casserole

 

Original recipe can be found here.

Ingredients:

1 loaf Italian bread, cur into 1-inch thick slices

1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp pepper

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 lb package fully cooked frozen meatballs, thawed

1 28oz jar pasta sauce

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Arrange bread slices in a single layer in ungreased 9×13 baking dish and fill in gaps with small bits of bread.

In a bowl, combine cream cheese, mayonnaise and seasonings.  Spread over bread slices.  Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella.

Gently mix together sauce and meatballs, spoon over cheese.

Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes.

 

Notes

I didn’t use the mayonnaise – I’m not a big fan.  But overall I wasn’t a fan of this recipe, and not because I think it was missing mayonnaise.  I didn’t like the textures of well everything.  It also took longer than if I’d just made regular meatball subs and most definitely doesn’t seem worth the extra effort and time.
