A wonderful hot sandwich for a satisfying lunch! A French Baguette filled with home made meatballs and pasta sauce and topped with melted cheese.
This was absolutely delicious and my husband and I agreed that this recipe is a keeper! I did make a couple of changes per other reviewers' suggestions and my family's own tastes (the changes I made include using 3 teaspoons of Italian seasoning instead of 2, adding 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, adding an extra clove of garlic, using 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese instead of 2, and using 2 eggs instead of just 1 egg). I also served these on Hoagie rolls and topped them with shredded Mozzarella cheese. The only other additional comment I wanted to make was that I ended up with 24 meatballs instead of 12 (I thought making only 12 meatballs made the meatballs a little too big for our tastes). Thank you so much for a great meal idea! - 15 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was searching for a meatball recipe and decided to try this one. My 5 star rating is for the meatballs only (with my alterations). The flavor was amazing; this is going in my personal cookbook. I made my own ground beef using my KitchenAid. I decided to add onion. I incorporated the onion and parsley with the beef as I ground it. I increased the Italian seasonings to 1 T, the parmesan to 1/4 cup, and used 2 eggs. I also added 2 tsp salt and 2 tsp fresh ground pepper. I also added 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella. Used the KitchenAid to do the mixing for a few minutes - then formed the meatballs using a cookie scoop (evenly measures one tablespoon size servings). I ended up with 30 meatballs. TIP: Keep your hands wet as you form the meatballs - helps keep the meat from sticking to your hands the the meatballs form faster. Of course if you have a cookie scoop, this will greatly speed up the process. Be sure to bake the meatballs for at least 30 minutes to ensure they are properly cooked through. - 14 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a great meatball recipe. the night before, I made my own sauce, prep the meatballs. Before I went to work I threw everything in the crockpot setting on low and cooked all day. I also had 24 MBs but that was ok, I froze what I didn't use for another meal. Thanks - 16 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
