Print this recipe
Take your favorite meatball sub and cross it with a casserole, and you get this scrumptious meatball bubble-up bake that can ably feed a crowd. Refrigerated biscuits make the recipe that follows ultra simple, and you could even rely on store-bought or frozen meatballs to dramatically cut down on the time it takes to get this dish out of the oven and onto the table.
As with other bubble up bake recipes, this one allows the biscuits to bake in the sauce, giving them a tender, moist texture. Cover the bake as it cooks to ensure the biscuits are fully cooked through before serving.

Grease a 9-by-13 casserole dish, and arrange the biscuit pieces over the bottom.
