Baked Mozzarella-Parmesan Meatballs..supper in a snap!

Let's be real...we know fast food is expensive and, honestly, most of us choose the drive through for convenience and time. Fear not! I have good news; there are easy-to-make meals at home that will not tax your wallet or your time! You don't have to make everything from scratch to cook great meals at home. Today's recipe can be assembled using products already packaged at your grocer. One pass through the freezer section, the bread aisle, and the dairy coolers and you are on your way to a hearty meal that will be ready in less than an hour, and feed your family for a fraction of the bill at the burger joint. These Baked Mozzarella-Parmesan Meatballs make a great meatball sub supper or you can pair the meatballs with a bowl of your favorite hot pasta.

Baked Mozzarella-Parmesan Meatballs..supper in a snap!



Ingredients:
2 jars/cans of favorite spaghetti sauce*
1 bag of frozen meatballs
1 bag of frozen peppers and onions
2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup Parmesan cheese
*NOTE* - you can use 1 jar, but we like more sauce so we used 2.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F
I used my large spring form pan; you can use any oven ware dish that will hold the meatballs in a single layer.



Pour 1/2 the jar of sauce (or 1 entire jar, if using two for more sauce) into the bottom of the pan. 
Pour the bag of meatballs over the sauce and arrange into a single layer.


Pour the bag of frozen peppers and onions over the meatballs. 
Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes  


Pour the 2nd half (or 2nd jar) of sauce over the pepper/onion/meatball layer.
Now top with the Mozzarella and the Parmesan cheese.



Bake for another 15 minutes (the internal temp of meatballs should be 165°F). If the cheese gets too brown cover with foil. 


Baked Mozzarella-Parmesan Meatballs..great for subs or pasta!
