I used ready-made Italian meatballs found in the freezer for a quicker way to make this. It was great. I took it to a potluck and several women asked me for the recipe.

I couldn't find Italian Bread, but I found a day old loaf of sourdough that was marked for quick sale, and it worked great! I spread the cheese mixture on the bread first, then cubed the bread for easier serving. I also used frozen meatballs. Next time I think I will use the garlic and herb cream cheese and ricotta instead of mayo. My family LOVED this, even my picky 5 year old.
