Place mozzarella cheese on bottom half of bread; spoon meatballs onto cheese. Replace top. Slice sandwich into serving-size portions; serve with extra spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese if desired.
5 star all the way. I did take a couple of liberties - I cooked the meatballs on my cusainart grill, heated salsa instead of spaghetti sauce, Put the Mozarrella on the bottom half of the bun -put it into the toaster oven until it started to melt. Then added some parmesan. Put the meatballs on the bun added the hot salsa sliced and enjoyed. Thanks looneytunesfan for a super Saturday night dinner - Loved it
Exceptional! Received rave reviews by my hubby and his poker buddies. They gobbled it up and asked for more. Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Thanks for such a yummy sandwich. I'll be making this again and again. Football season is just around the corner and it's a huge hit with everyone!
