  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix ground beef, green onion, bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl; form into 1-inch meatballs. Arrange meatballs in a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. Arrange bread slices in a single layer in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, and pepper in a bowl; spread over bread slices. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese over the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Combine spaghetti sauce, water, and garlic in a bowl; add meatballs. Pour spaghetti sauce mixture over bread. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over casserole.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 30 minutes.

I made exactly according to recipe. I enjoyed that there weren't any "cream of" soups in this. The recipe does need a little work. The bread on the bottom came out very soggy making for an un...

How can review a recipe you have never tried, are you professional chef, actually try the recipe before you review it.

Delicious but incredibly rich. Next time I will probably swap cooked pasta for the bread. Thanks!

Try it this way--toast the bread, top with cream cheese mixture, mozzarella, meatballs heated with sauce, and remaining mozzarella. Broil till melted and bubbly.

This was a huge hit with the fam!!! So good. I used the pre made fresh meatballs from the meat dept at the grocery but rerolled them smaller so they'd be closer to 1 inch like the recipe says....

Good but rich

Everyone loved it and asked for again.. just as good the second time and the family had me add it to the recurring meal for the week.

We don’t like meatballs, so I just brown the ground beef and it turns out great. I have made it several times.
