Thursday: Meatball Heroes

I know that we don’t really need a recipe for this but a plan for assembly might help. So, here goes. And, no, I do not serve a vegetable with this as it's huge and I would just end up cooking and storing them – “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Serves: 4    Prep: 5     Cooking: 25

Ingredients

1 jar of quality, low sugar marinara such as Rao’s or Trader Joe’s
12-16 meatballs
4 hero or sub rolls
8 slices good provolone
4 oz shredded mozzarella

Instructions

Prep Opportunity
Remove meatballs from the freezer and allow to thaw in the fridge all day or on the counter for an hour.
1
Preheat broiler.
2
In a large sauce pan or pot, heat sauce over medium high heat.
3
Reduce heat to medium and add meatballs.
4
Cook until thoroughly warmed through.
5
Meanwhile, split open the rolls and layer two pieces of provolone on each.
6
Place on a sheet pan and place 6-8” from the broiler for 3-4 minutes – watch them as everyone’s is different.
7
Remove from oven and place 3-4 meatballs on each roll.
8
Sprinkle with mozzarella and then back in the oven, under the broiler for another 3-4 minutes.
9
Serve heroes with a side of extra sauce.
