“Working girl here who likes quick and delicious. This meatball sub is made from frozen meatballs and purchased spaghetti sauce and provolone cheese, in the microwave. Total prep and cook time will be less than 10 minutes per sandwich if preparing several sandwiches, and will depend on microwave wattage.”

  1. Place the meatballs into a glass baking dish and heat in the microwave until hot, about 45 seconds per 6 meatballs. Remove from the microwave, add the spaghetti sauce, cover and return to the microwave. Heat until bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes depending on your microwave.
  2. Spoon the meatballs and sauce onto the rolls and top each one with two slices of provolone cheese. Return to the microwave and heat until cheese melts, about 15 seconds.

I had spaghetti sauce and meatballs leftovers, so decided to make a meatball sub. I heated up the meatballs and sauce, put on a lightly oven toasted hoagie roll, (brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with garlic powder), added mozzarella cheese to the top, and melted it in the microwave. It is very quick and easy. With leftover meatballs, I think it only took about 5 mins!



This was a great easy sandwich. I used about 1 cup of sauce and just spread it on the bottom of the bread and then topped with homemade meatballs fresh from the oven and cheese. Fast, easy, and delicious. This was a great quick meal.

This was a great addition to my recipie box. My husband and kids loved the taste. And I loved how easy it is! Sometimes I'll add 1/2 tsp of Liquid Smoke to change the taste a bit.
