Meatball Subs


These were easy and delicious. And we used the meatballs later in the week for pasta and lunches.

A few Trader Joe’s ingredients: par-cooked baguette loaves  (perfect for meatball subs and for fresh bread that you buy a day ahead); pizza sauce (lower in fat); cheese (I used fontina, but mozzarella is classic and good too. Trader Joes sells the cheapest cheese!)

Ingredients
Meatballs
Trader Joes par-baked baguette
Pizza sauce (marinara is good too, especially Rao’s)
Fresh grated mozzarella is best, but I used fontina

Directions
Make small meatballs (see Spaghetti and Meatballs  post for meatball recipe: http://wp.me/p1jTB2-73) . Substitute turkey for pork and beef to make the meatballs easier and healthier.
Bake baguette for 5 minutes at 425 degrees. Cut in half lengthwise. Fill with meatballs. Top with sauce and cheese. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. Serve warm.
