I had to use 1 and 1/2 lbs of meat in order to get enough meatballs. Using only 1 lb gave me 16 meatballs and I really need 24-ish to fill the dish. I also made the meatballs half ground beef and half ground pork, but that's just a flavor preference.

I had leftover meatballs and sauce from a recent spaghetti dinner and some almost stale hard rolls. This recipe worked great. The flavor didn't knock my socks off (maybe that was my sauce?) but it was a quick, reliable recipe that I am sure that I will use often.

I cheated with this one & used frozen meatballs but otherwise made as directed cut down to feed 3. I must admit I was a bit unsure of the bread with this but I added it anyway using some lebanese bread I had leftover. This was really simple to throw together and quite tasty. I'm still not sure whether I'm keen on the bread addition so would probably used some cooked pasta as a base next time but then it's not a sub sandwich casserole is it! (wink)

One of my favorite meals!! I cheat as well and use frozen meatballs that have been cooking all day in the crockpot! Yummy!

This was a real crowd pleaser! I cheated and used frozen meatballs. Also, instead of Italian bread, I used soft breadsticks. I was able to throw this together fast, stick it in the oven and forget it while I was busy with other things. Thanks a bunch for the tasty recipe!

This was a great tag for me & made the same dy as I had leftovers from another tagged pasta dish. While I did not serve it in subs as you suggested, I did make the recipe exactly as written to serve as a main dish w/the pasta-veggie combo already on hand + a green salad. The meatballs are good, but the creamy tomato sauce is the star of this recipe. It is rich, but worth the splurge. My bet is it can be made w/equal success using low-fat cheeses to improve nutritional data. Versatility also favours this recipe as it can be used for subs, atop spaghetti or even made as mini meatloaves & served w/the lovely sauce. This will definitely be repeated. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.

The cream cheese was just a little weird for me, but I'll definitely make this again when I'm in the mood for a very rich tasting meal.

I SO TOTALLY cheated making this recipe, but it was a 5* plus all the way. I used pre-made turkey meatballs and a rosemary garlic bread for the base. Additionally, I used 1/2 wine and 1/2 water and a mushroom based spaghetti sauce. The cream cheese/mayo mixture really makes this a rich and yummy dish. By using my shortcuts, this made a very quick weeknight meal that was thouroughly enjoyed!
