    5 Minute Marinara Sauce


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Place ground sirloin in a large mixing bowl and punch a well into the center of meat. Fill well with the egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire, parsley, cheese, and a little salt and pepper. Stir up meatball ingredients until well combined, don't overmix. Divide mix into 4 equal parts, roll each part into 4 balls and space equally onto a nonstick baking sheet. Put meatballs in oven and roast about 12 minutes. Break a meatball open and make sure meat is cooked through before removing from the oven.
    3. 3
      Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and garlic. When garlic starts sizzling, add herbs and crushed pepper. Allow oil to infuse for half a minute, then stir in the tomatoes and season sauce with salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a simmer, reduce heat, and simmer until meatballs are removed from oven.
    4. 4
      Combine meatballs and sauce and pile into sub rolls, 4 meatballs per sub. Top with shredded cheese and place under subs under broiler to melt cheese. Top with shredded basil or arugula. Enjoy!

      I only made the meatballs, but they were delicious! I did have to cook them another 5 minutes to be done, though. Overall, it was a quick and easy recipe. Thanks!

      These were wonderful! I (unknowingly) burned my onions for the sauce, and the end-result was "not very tasty". So I had to use jarred spaghetti sauce, but the meatballs were DELICIOUS. Thanks so much-

      DH was out for the night and I was craving a sandwich just like this one! The meatballs were perfect and I loved the sauce. I was tempted to reduce the pepper flakes as I am a heat wimp but went with the recipe as is. I'm so glad I did - it was in fact 'marvellous! I made it in an 8" sub roll which I had slightly hollowed out and scarfed the lot. This is now my 'go to' meatball sub recipe.
