0/6 Instructions
  • 1. Preheat the oven and cook the Meatballs in the oven as per the pack instructions (usually around 25 minutes) while you make the sauce.
  • 2. Heat the Oil in a large pan on a medium heat and then add the Onion and Garlic. Fry on a medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes until soft (do not burn).
  • 3. Add the whole and tinned Tomatoes to the pan. Fill each tin with a dash of water (approx. ⅛ of the tin) and slosh around to catch any leftover juices. Add this to the pan.
  • 4. Add the Basil, Oregano, Chili Flakes and Salt to the pan stir and bring to the boil. Turn down slightly to a simmer and leave for 20 minutes stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Each time you stir use the spoon to 'smash' the whole Tomatoes down. Once the Meatballs are cooked add them to the sauce and stir well.
  • 5. Slice your Bread Rolls in half lengthways (so you can open them up but they are still joined at the bottom) and place on a separate baking tray. Place 2 slices of Cheese on each roll and bake in the oven for 1 to 2 minutes until the Cheese has just melted.
  • 6. Remove the rolls from the oven then spoon 3 Meatballs and a good helping of sauce into each sub. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and serve.
