      Followed the recipe (almost) exactly. I always add more spices than is recommended, some basil, oregano, garlic pepper and salt. This was delicious! My husband complimented it without being prompted..which feels fantastic! Thanks for this keeper!

      This was a wonderful idea and turned out pretty good. We used the garlic bread with cheese; that was a mistake, as the cheese browned too much on the bottom of the casserole during cooking. Also think it needs about 40 ounces or so of the spaghetti sauce. We added the 1/2 cup water (in place of the one cup suggested) plus 8 ounces of tomato sauce and it was still way too dry. Made with Kittencal's meatballs, which we made in advance and froze for this recipe. They were awesome. Thanks for the great idea. With a little tweaking next time (and definitely will make again), this should be wonderful.

      Yes, this is very easy and everyone in my housed LOVED it! I had no Texas toast, so I simply buttered 8 slices of bread and sprinkled them with garlic powder and proceeded from there. Incredibly good and less messy to eat than an actual meatball sub. Thanx!
