Microwave Meatball Sandwich in Ten Minutes

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Working girl here who likes quick and delicious. This meatball sub is made from frozen meatballs and purchased spaghetti sauce and provolone cheese, in the microwave. Total prep and cook time will be less than 10 minutes per sandwich if preparing several sandwiches, and will depend on microwave wattage."

This was a great addition to my recipie box. My husband and kids loved the taste. And I loved how easy it is! Sometimes I'll add 1/2 tsp of Liquid Smoke to change the taste a bit.
