You’ve never had meatballs and sauce like this before! We’re making them weeknight-easy by starting with frozen meatballs, adding cheese and store-bought pasta sauce, then wrapping it all up in a biscuit for easy serving and maximum dipping—in more pasta sauce, of course. MORE+ LESS-

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each to form 6-inch round. Place two cheese strips in center of each round. Top half of each dough round with 4 meatball halves and 1 tablespoon sauce. Fold dough over filling; firmly press edges of dough with fork to seal.
  • 3
    Place pockets on cookie sheet. Brush tops with melted butter. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese, then with Italian seasoning.
  • 4
    Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Serve with additional pasta sauce, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have sliced mozzarella cheese, feel free to use shredded cheese.
  • Keep dough refrigerated until ready to use it. If it sits on the counter, it is more difficult to press into a 6-inch circle.
