Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Heat garlic bread with spread side up on a baking sheet in the preheated oven until warm and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bring spaghetti sauce to a boil in a large pot. Place frozen meatballs into sauce. Reduce heat to low and simmer until meatballs are heated through, about 20 minutes.
  5. Tear garlic bread into bite-size pieces and spread into bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour spaghetti sauce and meatballs over garlic bread, coating bread with sauce and distributing meatballs evenly. Spread mozzarella cheese over top in a layer, followed by a layer of Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake casserole until cheese has melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you are using the frozen garlic toast that is already sliced packaged in boxes, I usually need 2 boxes. I have even used the frozen garlic bread with cheese, and it is great too!
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I made it as directed as it was pretty good. As some of the other reviewers wrote I was concerned a bout the bread becoming soggy and it did. I think next time I make it I will keep the bread on...

Loved it! I used jalapeno bagels instead of the french bread and added Frenches Fried onions to the top right before it was done. My son who doesn't normally like casseroles loved it
