Expert Tips

  • When purchasing frozen meatballs for this recipe, look for those labeled “original” or “homestyle” rather than the “Italian” varieties.
  • Two cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls can be substituted for the Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheets in this recipe. Just unroll dough, and firmly press perforations to seal before proceeding with recipe.
