    Annacia's Note:

    This is a true man pleaser, think of it for TV game parties. Fresh marinara sauce makes all the difference in these hearty sandwiches. Look for it near the cheeses and fresh pasta at the supermarket. I'm thinking that a mess of meatballs could be made ahead and frozen to be used as and when wanted.

      My son just loved this! It is so easy to make and put together. I loved the crispiness of the baguette combined with the juiciness of the meatballs. I admit I did use a bit more cheese. :) This was a wonderful lunch for us today! Made for Photo Tag!
