Meatball Sub Casserole

When a Tasty video popped up in my Facebook feed last month, I knew I’d found a recipe that I had to try. It had Pillsbury biscuits in it and as you can tell if you are a regular reader, I’m obsessed with their products. I couldn’t resist. I went out that very night to buy all the ingredients to make this delicious Meatball Sub Casserole.

Meatball subs are my youngest daughter’s favourite. It’s the only kind of sub she will order when we visit SUBWAY. Her toppings are simple: sauce and cheese. This is her kinda recipe.

It is CRAZY easy to make. Watch the Tasty video I linked at the top and you’ll see the prep work in action. There is barely anything to it!

Cut up some refrigerated biscuit dough (uncooked), pour on a jar of pasta sauce, top with frozen cooked meatballs and cheese. I also sprinkled on Italian seasoning for garnish and a little boost of flavour.

The dough rises and cooks in the sauce and the end result really does taste like a meatball sub. I used a large casserole dish so we had leftovers the next day. It may not be the best thing to eat if you are watching your weight, but it sure satisfies those carb cravings!

I’m planning a few more biscuit casserole recipes using Pillsbury refrigerated biscuits. My next one will be a dessert. I’ll share it if it turns out ok!
