How to make it
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Mix sausage, 1/2 cup marinara, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons parsley, and 2 tablespoons basil in large bowl.
- Using wet hands, shape mixture into 8 meatballs.
- Bring 2 tablespoons parsley, 2 tablespoons basil, remaining marinara, and meatballs to boil in large skillet. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until meatballs are cooked through, turning often, about 20 minutes.
- Place baguette bottoms on baking sheet; spread each with about 2 tablespoons sauce from skillet.
- Cut meatballs in half in skillet; overlap 4 halves on each baguette bottom. Spoon remaining sauce over meatballs, then sprinkle mozzarella over, dividing equally.
- Bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and basil and cover with baguette tops.
- Fresh marinara sauce makes all the difference in these robust sandwiches. Look for it near the cheeses and fresh pasta at the supermarket.
