There's nothing like a messy, cheesy classic meatball sub that you can throw in the mix of a game day party. Tender oven-baked meatballs rest on a toasted hoagie roll with a bottom layer of sliced provolone cheese. The finale comes in the form of mozzarella and parmesan broiled to a bubbly delight.


  • Four Hoagie Rolls
  • Eight Slices of Provolone Cheese
  • 12 large Oven-Baked Meatballs (or enough to fill the rolls)
  • 2 cups of Marinara/Pasta Sauce.
  • 1 cup freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese


  • Turn your oven setting to broil.
  • Slice four hoagie rolls horizontally. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  • Place each roll onto a baking sheet.
  • Lay 2 slices of Provolone cheese on each of the four hoagie buns.
  • Set the rolls under the broiler for a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted. Watch closely because this will not take long.
  • Place 3 large meatballs (a total of 12) on each hoagie roll.
  • Divide 2 cups of marinara/pasta sauce into 1/2 cup servings—Laddle over the meatballs.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup each of shredded mozzarella and 1/8 cup each of shredded parmesan cheese over each meatball sub.
  • Broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the roll are nicely toasted.
  • ENJOY!!
