A few weeks ago I made a Meatball and Ricotta Pizza. We absolutely loved it! I had some leftover meatballs and decided to make this casserole with them. It is very similar to one of my favorite dips - Pizza Dip. Pizza Dip is layered dip of cream cheese, pizza sauce and cheese. It is served with french bread slices. This casserole puts it all together in one dish and adds meatballs for a comforting meal.
This was so simple and tasted fantastic. This dish feeds a lot and would be great for a potluck. If you want to assemble this ahead of time, I would wait to add the spaghetti sauce until you were ready to bake it. I think the bread would get too soggy otherwise. We both loved this casserole. I am already planning on making this again next week!
