We love meatballs subs & I'm not opposed to buying frozen meatballs for a quick & easy meal. This can be thrown in the crock pot & you'll have a great meal when you come home.
Frozen meatballs, beef or turkey
Grated Mozzarella cheese for topping
Quick Marinara Sauce: (or use your favorite jarred sauce)
1-2 T. olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
a sprinkle of crushed red peppers, optional
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
salt & pepper & basil to taste
In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion & saute until translucent. Add garlic & crushed red peppers & cook about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes & seasonings. Bring to a boil & then simmer. Add this point, I put it in a crock pot & throw in the frozen meatballs & cook on low all day.
When ready to serve:
Cut the bread into portion sizes & split them horizontally. You can lightly toast them, if desired. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese & then fill the bread with enough meatballs & sauce. These are very messy & you may need a fork for eating! I sprinkled fresh basil on top...Yum!!!
