If you are in a rush, you can use frozen (defrosted and cooked) meatballs but it really is worth it to make them fresh! This casserole is even better served the next day so if you have leftovers, don’t throw them out! You’ll thank me for that later.

  3. Oh, yummy! Thanks for this wonderful, family friendly recipe! I’m sharing this on fb and pinning! Thanks for bringing dinner to THE SCOOP1

  4. This recipe sounds so good, but I have some questions about its prep. When assembling the casserole part, you say to ‘Stir together egg, parsley, pepper, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese & pepper’. You mention pepper twice but don’t list pepper in the ingredients. Is this black pepper and how much? You also say to use 1/4 cup parmesan cheese in this part, but never mention where to use the remaining 1/4 cup. I would appreciate if you could clarify this so my casserole tastes as good as I am sure yours did.

    • :) The pepper in the pasta is just to taste. Both remaining cheese are put on top before it is baked. I missed adding the parmesan in there have updated the post. Thank you for letting me know!
