  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  2. Mix together onions, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and ground beef. Roll into 1 inch diameter balls, and place in a baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Arrange the bread cubes in a single layer in an ungreased 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning and black pepper until smooth. Spread this mixture over each bread cube. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the grated mozzarella cheese.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the pasta sauce, water, and garlic. Gently stir in meatballs. Pour over the bread and cheese mixture in the baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese evenly over the top.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes, or until heated through.

I thought that I would like this but something is missing. It was just a bit too rich though.

The hubs enjoyed the meatballs (actually picked them out!) He thought the bread was too soggy. He didn't even eat the left overs :(

I liked it. It's much easier to just buy the frozen meatballs, but it was good and a change from some of my staples.
