Meatball Sub Casserole
I happen to really like this casserole! I guess I better like it if I’m sharing it with you! The funny thing is, as a kid, I would have hated it. Completely and utterly hated it. It has to do with the fact that I abhorred tomato sauce. I didn’t even want to look at tomato sauce. Every time we had pasta, my mom would make me a simple white sauce. She was so good to me! Thanks, Mom! Now, when I think about it, I don’t think I actually didn’t like tomato sauce. I think I made it up in my mind because I didn’t like spaghetti (the noodle shape itself). I still don’t love it. It always made me feel sick as a kid. And that seems really weird, because I was good with any other shape of pasta. That’s not just a little weird. That’s so weird. I’m so weird.
I must say though, I was an odd child when it came to food. As I said, I didn’t like spaghetti. That’s a really bad thing to not like because that’s a household staple for a lot of people. You don’t know how many times I was at a friend’s house and they would be having spaghetti for dinner and I would choke down as much as I could to be polite. And spaghetti is served at every youth group dinner… I’m sure of it! Another thing that every kid likes, except me, is hot dogs. I had to force down a lot of hot dogs growing up. I have memories of them being a very popular birthday party food. And speaking of birthday parties, I didn’t like cake because I couldn’t stand the icing. I soon learned it was just that sickly sweet icing that comes on store bought cakes that I didn’t like. Give me any other type of icing and give me a spoon! All that to say, this would not have been a hit with me as a child. And that being said, I would guess that I was an odd child and this would be a hit with most kids! Let me know if your kids like it! Happy cooking!
