Like a lot of other people, I added more spice, namely basil, rosemary, and thyme the next time 'round and it was much more flavorful. Also I recommend lowering the time in the oven by 5-10 min to retain more juice in the final product.

Quite good. I always add FAR more spice than a recipe calls for, and did so here by adding lots of minced garlic. I also used bread crumbs. A good one.

Loved these meatballs! I used Bec's recipe for Marinara Sauce-#120717 and also melted some mozarella on hoagie buns- why not make it extra messy! Thanks for another great recipe Nurse Di.

Tasty. I used 1 lbs. ground beef, 1/2 lbs. Italian sausages and added fresh minced thyme, fresh minced rosemary and fresh minced oregano, I use bread stuffing 1/2 cup and basil fresh with 2 minced cloves of garlic and 1/2 chopped minced onion, salt and pepper to taste. I browned these in a skillet till cooked. In my other pot I had marinara sauce added 1 tbls. brown sugar fresh basil sea salt & pepper to taste. When the meatballs were cooked I placed them in the sauce and put to simmer. As a bed for the meatballs I thinly sliced zucchini with red peppers and used a bit of juice from the meatballs to cook them. I placed a bed of peppers sprinkled with parmesan cheese the meatballs in sauce and then some shredded mozerella cheese on a warmed sliced french roll. There was nothing left after dinner.

These meatball sandwiches made a quick and tasty supper. I made the meatballs as stated. After I put them on the buns, I sprinkled some grated mozzarella cheese on them and stuck them under the broiler until the cheese melted. Oh yes.. they were messy, but boy were they good! Thanks for sharing Nurse Di!

This was a hit. Used italian flavored bread crumbs instead of the cornflakes.

I let my kids pick out what they wanted for supper and this was their choice. They can sure pick em', too. These were wonderful, hearty sandwiches. Using store bought marinara makes preparation very easy. Tasted as good or better than the ones we get at our fav Italian cafe. Thanks!!

These meatball sandwiches were so YUMMY and DELICIOUS!!! Very easy to put together. I made the meatballs ahead of time and then put them in the marinara to heat through. Yes, it was messy but I have never had any that weren't. That is part of the fun. Thanks Nurse Di for another quick, easy, and delicious recipe.
