Meatball Subs

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.

French baguette (for a homemade version, check here.)

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!!!
