Meatball Sandwiches - Easy Family Meal

 Creating, preparing and serving easy meals is a necessity in our home.  The scheduled we keep is crazy and non-stop but that doesn't mean that we can forget about good home cooked meals.  When I am at a loss for what to plan for meals for the next week I always pick up our favorite pasta sauce - Mezzetta®.  I know that if I have these Mezzetta® Pasta Sauces on hand that I can always throw together a delicious home cooked meal, even on our busiest evening. 

The Mezzetta® Napa Valley Homemade Pasta Sauces come in a number of varieties, all of which we like to use in so many recipes.  I guess you could say, we are a pasta sauce lovin' family!

Available Flavors:
  • Marinara
  • Tomato & Sweet Basil
  • Spicy Marinara
  • Roasted Garlic & Caramelized Onions
  • Parmesan, Asiago & Romano
  • Wild Mushroom

Now, I wouldn't say that my kids are picky eaters but finding meals that they both like has been a challenge - except Meatballs!  Seriously, my kids could eat Meatballs every day!  I cannot complain though, because I am not one to make my own Meatballs so really it is a win win situation for me!  Hello frozen meatballs - so many options for meals!

Meatball Sandwiches


Frozen Home style Meatballs (or make your own)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Hoagie Buns


1.  Add frozen meatballs to a large sauce pan. 

2.  Pour Mezzetta® Napa Valley Homemade Pasta Sauce over the meatballs.  Cover pan with a lid. 

3.  Let meatballs and sauce simmer for 10 minutes, stir.  Let meatballs and sauce simmer for another 10 minutes and stir. 

4.  Layer cooked meatballs on a hoagie bun.

5.  Drizzle some Mezzetta® pasta sauce over the meatballs and sprinkle some shredded Mozzarella cheese on the sandwich. 

6.  Serve HOT and enjoy!

I told you this was an easy family meal - no brainer for a busy family on the go!  Another bonus, usually meatballs come in large packages which means leftovers!  Yummy!
