Pinterest is my go-to for new recipes and when I found an incredibly easy recipe for meatball subs floating around out there, I pinned that baby quick and put the items I needed on my next grocery list. Josh isn't a huge fan of meatball subs and I've only had them once, from Subway, and I was extremely disappointed. I thought it was going to be SO good...but it wasn't all that great. BUT I wasn't ready to give up on them quite yet and thought I'd try my hand at them.
I bought a package of meatballs from the frozen meat section in Publix and they had already seasoned them. I used my dutch oven and put the meatballs in the bottom then covered them with a jar of marinara sauce. You can most likely use any kind of red sauce but I specifically wanted marinara for ours. I, very gently, tossed the meatballs around in the marinara so that they were completely covered and let them cook until they were all heated thoroughly.
In the meantime I popped our sub rolls into our toaster oven for a quick minute, just to toast them a little so they wouldn't get soggy or limp when I put the meatballs and sauce in. I laid all of the rolls on a baking sheet then filled each one with 3-4 meatballs and put a little sauce on top of each sub. Then I topped them with mozzarella cheese and put them in the oven, that I had preheated to 400, for about 5-7 minutes...or until I could tell that the cheese was metled and bubbly.
Then you're done, that's all there is to it! We ate ours with seasoned French fries and it was such a filling meal...good for an always hungry husband!
I've already picked up another package of meatballs and they are patiently waiting in my freezer for me to make this meal again! Can you even believe that Josh has already REQUESTED these for dinner again?! #wifewin
