Meatballs, marinara (or meat sauce) and mounds of garlicky, crusty bread all bubbling away together in a hearty casserole. That pretty much describes the dish that I picture hungry kids, time-crunched parents and anyone who loves meatball sub sandwiches diving right into. I put this Meatball Sub Casserole in the “good-better” category. It’s pretty darn good if you buy your favorite store bought meatballs and jar of pasta sauce. It’s even better when you make the meatballs and sauce homemade. Either way, it’ll take you just minutes to prepare, a few more minutes to cook and dinner is on the table before you know it! Variations of this recipe have been circulating on line, and somehow it landed in my own cyber lap. It seemed like a no-brainer, and indeed it was. I love making homemade meatballs, but I found a bag of turkey meatballs and decided to give it a try. Yummy! I’ve even double the amount of meatballs while still using one jar of pasta sauce and it just made it, well, even meatier! The casserole of meatballs is surrounded by slices of fresh bread that has been brushed with a garlic and olive oil combo, and that just completes the de-constructed meatball sub sandwich! Everyone needs dishes they can pull together in no time, and this one is just right for the meatball and cheese lovers in the family!
