How to make it

  • Saute onion and garlic in butter or oil until tender.
  • Combine all remaining marinara ingredients, except tomato paste, in small slow cooker or medium/large saucepan.
  • Cook at medium heat, stirring occasionally, until flavors meld. Can cook uncovered to help thicken, or use paste, as needed.
  • Combine all meatball ingredients and form into 32 meatballs.
  • Place on wire rack, sprayed with no stick spray, over cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned and cooked through.
  • Carefully fold meatballs into marinara.
  • Brush insides of rolls with melted butter, and place in cooling oven to toast...about 7 minutes(I open mine and let them rest right on a section of the oven rack so they "hang" on the oven rack, itself)
  • To serve, place 2 halves of cheese inside on bottom of roll, place 4 meatballs in roll on top of cheese, and spoon small amount of extra marinara over meatballs.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

    This is sooo good! Seems like an overwhelming amount of ingredients but really I had a bunch of them on hand all ready. The sauce is fantastic! I served it with and Italian potato salad and it was perfect! I do think your 180 min. cook time (up top) might be a typo ;) anyway great recipe! Check out my review in the IMI ------> Meatball And Marinara Subs
