3 CHEESE MEATBALL CASSEROLE - DINNER

I am always looking for new recipes and when I found this recipe I knew I wanted to try it. I changed mine up just a little bit though, but I think it still turned out pretty good! Matthew was confused as to why there weren't any noodles in it lol, but then I explained it was a meatball casserole. Of course if you wanted to, you could add noodles.


Ingredients:
- 1 bag of frozen meatballs
- 1 1/2 cans of pasta sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
- Italian seasoning (to taste)
- Garlic powder (to taste)


Step 1: Cook your meatballs according to the package. I bought these at Walmart and it only took them about 25 minutes!

Step 2: Spread a thin layer of pasta sauce in a 3 quart casserole dish. I put a thin layer of cheddar cheese down and then add the meatballs. 

Step 3: Add a thick layer of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Step 4: Add a layer of pasta sauce over cheese, and then add the rest of the meatballs. 

Step 5: Add final layer of cheese. 

Step 6: I added a little Italian seasoning and garlic powder with each layer and then added more on the very top.

Step 7: Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Just long enough for it to warm the inside and melt the cheese.

This was really good and there are definitely plenty of leftovers since it's just the two of us. We plan on using the leftovers to make meatball subs, and use the other half of that pasta sauce (since this only calls for 1 1/2 jars) to add on top of the subs. You could cook noodles to add to your leftovers, too!
