Ingredients
  • For Meatballs:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef (reserved from Fast Food Cheese Burgers recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs or panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup tomato sauce, jarred or homemade, recipe follows
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 sub rolls
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
For Sub:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

For meatballs, in a large bowl mix together all ingredients (including the beef), except the canola oil, tomato sauce and mozzarella, until well combined. Using wet hands, form walnut-size pieces into balls. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and fry the meatballs until browned on all sides.

Slice the rolls in half lengthwise and put on a baking sheet. Top each half with 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce, 4 meatballs and some mozzarella cheese. Put in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Transfer to a serving platter and serve.

Chunky Tomato Sauce:

In a medium pot, add the oil and heat over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for another 15 minutes.
