If you like meatball subs, you'll love this tangy casserole - it has
all the rich flavor of the popular sandwiches with none of the mess.

Italian bread is spread with a cream cheese mixture, then topped with meatballs, spaghetti sauce and cheese.

Served with a green salad, it's a hearty meal the whole family enjoys. Mine goes crazy over it.
