Yield: 6 Servings

2 lbs. Mom’s Meatballs or other meatball of your choice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. dried oregano
28 oz. can no added salt crushed tomatoes
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
6 crusty wheat rolls, split
12 slices provolone cheese


Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange meatballs on baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, turning occasionally, until meatballs are browned and cooked through.

While meatballs are cooking, prepare the sauce. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in oregano, crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cooked meatballs and gently mix until meatballs are coated in sauce.

Place split hoagie rolls on a large rimmed baking sheet, cut side up. Place 2 slices of cheese on the cut side of each roll, covering as much bread as possible. Broil on high for 2-3 minutes or until rolls are toasted and cheese is melted.

Place meatballs and sauce on the bottom half of each roll. Serve immediately and enjoy!
