MEATBALL SUB CASSEROLE

January 13, 2015

When I told my husband I was working on writing a recipe for a meatball sub casserole, his eyes lit up and he had but one thing to say – “can it be saucy?” The man loves sauce, people. And with tomato-y, basil-y, meat-y goodness, this meatball sub casserole has me at MVP status in his book. Personally, I love ways of making foods that are typically a one at a time deal (quesadillas, paninis, pancakes, etc.) quickly in a batch big enough to serve a crowd.
