The spaghetti sauce was also a pleasant surprise. The cookbook said to add some red wine to the sauce, and boy that was a really great addition! I can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch!
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon Italian bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano
2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese plus slices for sandwich
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 tablespoons red wine
1 cup jarred spaghetti sauce (I use Classico or Bertolli)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350
2. Combine beef, basil, oregano, bread crumbs, cheese, pepper, garlic salt, garlic powder, and egg. Form into balls. Place onto lighted greased baking sheet and back for 10-12 minutes.
3. In a sauce pan, combine jarred sauce and red wine. Bring to boil, then simmer until needed.
4. To finish the sandwich, place cooked meatballs on the bread, cover it with red sauce and sliced cheese. Broil for 6 minutes until cheese is melted.
