Who wouldn't want a meal that is basically 'hands off' and tastes great!
This meal can be made "totally homemade" by making and freezing Italian Meatballs ahead of time - using your Homemade Canned Tomato Sauce and even making your own "Bread Rolls"... I'd mention that we use some of my "Homemade Mozzarella" in this too but, didn't want to scare you away from an easy meal - because there is an "easy Button" route for this recipe!
Just press the "easy button" and use store bought frozen Italian meatballs (your favorite brand),
a store bought jar of pasta sauce, some provolone or mozzarella slices and soft hoagie rolls... There really isn't a "recipe" per say - you need to just keep in mind how many people you are serving and work form there.
A meatball count of about 24 meatballs (2 oz size), a jar of sauce - will get you about 6 well stuffed Italian Meatball Sandwiches.
Toss your frozen meatballs and sauce into a crockpot, set on high for 4 hours. When ready - spoon onto soft rolls and drape cheese over the top, set under a broiler if you want to melt the cheese a bit - this doesn't take long to melt so, keep an eye on it!
