  • 1-2 packages Carando Abruzzese Fresh Italian Meatballs
  • 4-6 hoagie rolls
  • 4-6 slices provolone cheese
  • 12 ounces marinara sauce
  • 6 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese & parsley for garnish


Step 1: Grilling the Meatballs

The grill is still your stage. Preheat it to medium-high heat, and let the Carando Abruzzese Meatballs take center spotlight. Grill these beauties until they’re perfectly cooked – juicy on the inside with a smoky exterior that’ll have you doing a happy dance.

Step 2: Assembling the Subs

Picture this – warm hoagie rolls, a layer of gooey provolone cheese, and those perfectly grilled Carando meatballs taking center stage. It’s a party in your mouth waiting to happen.

Pour that warmed marinara sauce over the meatballs – go ahead, be generous. This is where the flavor explosion begins. Now, sprinkle a mountain of shredded mozzarella cheese on top. We’re talking a cheesy avalanche that’ll make your taste buds sing.

Step 3: Time for the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place your assembled subs on a baking sheet and let them bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. The aroma will fill your kitchen, teasing everyone within a mile radius.

Step 4: Garnish and Serve

Take those subs out of the oven, and here’s where you add the final touches. Grate some Parmesan cheese over the top for that extra punch of flavor. A sprinkle of fresh parsley adds a pop of color and a hint of freshness.

Let the subs cool for a moment, resisting the urge to dive in immediately. When you do take that first bite, the flavors will hit you like a symphony of smokiness, cheesiness, and savory goodness. This Meatball Sub will have a taste experience that’ll make you the BBQ maestro in your neighborhood.
