    Italian Meatball Subs

    My good friends who own an Italian restaurant in New York shared a tip with me that I use over and over. Instead of dry bread crumbs in your homemade meatballs, use cut-up slices of white bread. Your meatballs will come out moister and tastier.

    Serves: 4

    Cooking Time: 40 min

    * 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce, divided
    * 1 pound ground beef
    * 2 slices white bread, cut up
    * 1 small onion, finely chopped
    * 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    * 1 egg
    * 1 teaspoon dried parsley
    * 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 4 (6-inch) hoagie rolls, split


    1. In a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup spaghetti sauce, the ground beef, bread, onion, Parmesan cheese, egg, parsley, and garlic powder; mix well. Shape into sixteen 2-inch meatballs.

    2. Meanwhile, in a soup pot, bring remaining spaghetti sauce to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add meatballs, cover, and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, or until no pink remains in the meatballs.

    3. Place meatballs in rolls, top with sauce, and serve.
