Movie Night Meatball Subs
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
6 ingredients
4 servings
I use my Family Favorite Basic Meatballs and Fresh Tomato Sauce (recipes posted separately) to make these for family movie nights (hence the name). They are a little less messy to eat than most meatball subs due to the hollowed-out rolls, and the unused bread chunks can be used for other purposes.

  • grated parmesan cheese (fresh or canister, your preference)
