Serve these meatball subs with a side of roasted carrots and finish the meal off with cannoli poke cake.

These subs couldn’t be much easier but they sure are a crowd pleaser.

Take a shortcut with all natural Aidells Chicken Meatballs that you can feel good about serving your family and pair it with a homemade marinara sauce that you can have ready in just about 30 minutes!

ITALIAN CHICKEN MEATBALL SUBS

My brother came home from Michigan State last week (well, to my parents home, not my home. You know what I mean). He’s my baby brother, though 23, and I’m so proud of him.

After he finished school for graphic design (which he had a full scholarship for), he decided he wanted to be a surgeon. So, he’s now pre-med.

Meatball subs always remind me of him because he often orders them when we go out to eat.

He’ll be living in a house this coming year so no more college food court or my parents cooking to rely on. He’ll have to fend for himself.

For as good as he is at most things, cooking is not one of them. Luckily, I think this recipe is easy enough for him to follow.

You could even take a shortcut and use a jarred sauce, but I think the homemade marinara is worth the tiny bit more effort.
