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!)

Make small meatballs (see Spaghetti and Meatballs  post for meatball recipe: . 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.
