Meatball Sub… With A Twist

Meatball sub- for those days I need something heartier to eat .

SPOILER ALERT !!!! JUST WAIT TILL THE END OF THE RECIPE TO SEE WHAT I ADDED TO TAKE IT UP A NOTCH.

Sometimes I miss my comfort food because the ingredients are not organic or gluten free. So I love coming up with my healthier version to satisfy those days when comfort food is what I need. Or on those colder days when you want something to fill you up.

 

Serves 2  so for large families double or triple the ingredients

I like to heat my hoagie rolls in the oven. I place them on a baking sheet, sprinkle a little water on them and heat them in the oven at 375 for 10-15 minutes or until crisp.

Assemble :

  • Cut hoagie roll on one side keeping the other side closed.
  • Put in 3-4 meatballs(what ever fits comfortably in the roll)
  • Add a couple of slices of mozzarella cheese
  • Add some spinach
  • Pour some marinara sauce to cover the meatballs
  • serve.

Now if you really want to take your meatball sub to the next level add some guacamole. BAM!!!!!!
