  • Coat a rimmed baking pan with olive oil, place meatballs on pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Lower temperature to 375 degrees.
  • Pour some of your marinara sauce in the bottom of your 13x9 baking dish. Lay cooked meatballs on top of the sauce.
  • Cover with the rest of your marinara sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top. It should be covered in cheese.
  • Cover dish with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  • The last 5 minutes or so, you can raise the oven temperature back to 400 degrees to help get the cheese golden brown. Alternatively, you could also use your broiler for a few minutes after it's done baking.
