Aaaawh, this was soooo good. How I end up try n this recipe I was out of marinera and spagetti sauce hungry and been craving meatballs all week, so I decided to give it a try, and boy was I glad I did. I topped the sub with grated parmasean and sweet and spicy banana peppers, that's how I make it at the sub shops too. Yummy. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great idea using some of the bread from the bun - they are often just too overwhelming.. I didn't use any flour for the chili sauce. This is a very tasty Sub sanwich Thanks for posting Stephanie
