1 bag frozen meatballs
1 jar marinara or spaghetti sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup Italian blend cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 loaf fresh Italian bread, sliced

Preheat oven to 400*.

Place meatballs in a medium saucepan and add the marinara or spaghetti sauce. Cook over medium heat until warmed completely through, about 10 minutes. Stir often to keep from sticking. Remove from heat and pour into a 9x13 pan or baking dish and prepare bread.

Butter the bread and sprinkle with garlic salt, or you may leave it plain. Or, you can use prepared frozen garlic bread but thaw before proceeding with the casserole. Stand the bread up around all sides of the pan or baking dish, pushing the bread into the sauce. Layer on the cheeses, ending with the Parmesan on top.

Place in oven and bake for about 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and tops of the bread are browned. Remove from oven and serve piping hot.

Makes about 4 generous servings. Add a salad to make a nice, quick meal.
