Meatball Subs

I know what you're thinking...who needs a recipe for meatball subs?
You do, because what makes these meatball subs different from all others is the amazing cheesy spread that goes on your subs which makes them absolutely DIVINE!



1 lb frozen meatballs, Italian style
1 loaf bakery Italian bread
1/2 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Spread Recipe
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon italian seasoning
1/2 dash garlic powder


Directions
- In a large pot combine frozen meatballs and spaghetti sauce.
- Heat over medium until meatballs are heated throughout.
- Meanwhile, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, pepper, and garlic powder and set aside.
- Slice Italian style bread loaves horizontally with serrated bread knife.
- Cut loaves into three- or four-inch sections to make small sandwiches.
- Spread cream cheese mixture on insides of each sandwiche's tops and bottoms.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- When meatballs are heated, spoon onto sandwiches and top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
- Put sandwich tops on and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
- Bake about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.


**You can always substitute low fat cream cheese and low fat mayo to make this a healtheir dish. The taste is not too different and may not even be noticable.

***Recipe can easily be doubled if needed.
