Made this tonight as something different and it was amazing! made them a bit smaller and since i made the meatballs smaller (about ping pong ball size) was able to get about 16 subs (with 3-4 meatballs each) out of it. would halve the sauce as we had a few cups remaining, but will put into a spaghetti sauce. also, only used 1/4 c of grated Parmesan with the meat mix and topped with shredded mozarella and parmesan. people were going for seconds while i was still dishing out firsts! fantastic! thanks for posting!


My kids loved this recipe it came out great!


This was a delicious recipe. I would add another half jar of marinara sauce and some provolone cheese. Kids loved it and so did I. Great meatballs! I will be making it again.
