Last night’s dinner came together so quickly, it did not matter that we got home late. It was one of those wham-bamb and dinner is done kind of things. I know I’ve been falling behind in my posts – and that says life has gotten a little nuts. There have been some changes as work (no details), which have left me a little too worn out to write.
This dish is a simple twist on the usual Italian Meatball Sandwich. Instead of a marinara sauce or spicy pasta sauce, the sauce is a jar of Pizza Sauce. The Meatballs themselves come from the freezer (how convenient) – Johnsonville Italian Meatballs. Leave it to those sausage experts over at Johnsonville to come up with a delicious, handy frozen meatball backed with Italian goodness.
Pizza Sub Sandwich
1 Jar Pizza Sauce
16 Johnsonville Italian Meatballs, frozen cooked (from 16-oz bag)
4 hoagie buns, split
1 cup shredded pizza cheese blend
In 2-quart saucepan, heat cooking sauce and meatballs over medium heat about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated. Remove meatballs from sauce and set aside, leaving the warm sauce in the pot.
Split each hoagie bun. Brush top and bottom of bun with pizza sauce. Sprinkle a little pizza cheese on each half. Place 4 meatballs into each sandwich. Top with more cheese.
Place sandwiches on a foil-lined baking sheet. Pop under the broiler just long enough for cheese to melt.
Serve and enjoy!
