I Could Eat This Every Week!
There are so many days when i find myself super busy with the hustle and bustle of life that I forget all about making dinner. There are also those days where I know I’m going to be busy and I need to get something started in the morning as I won’t have time to make a meal later on in the day. That’s when recipes like these come in handy.
Dump and bake meatball casserole is just that. You dump all 5 ingredients into the slow cooker, set it, and forget it! Does it really get any better than that? Nope, not really. Enjoy this amazing meal!
Do you like meatball sub sandwiches? If so, you are going to go crazy over this super easy-to-make casserole. I’m tellin’ ya what, son, this stuff is loaded with flavor!

My husband told me that he hopes I make it again soon and trust me, I fully intend, too. Enjoy!
