Game Day Recipe ~ Italian Meatball Subs From Taste of Home

Our game day football recipe this weekend was delicious Italian Meatball Subs. I was skeptical about making these myself, because every meatball I have ever tried to make would fall apart or just end up dry.  

I found this slow cooker recipe through  I followed the directions as spelled out below and they came out perfect!  Very flavorful and scrumptious.  The only thing I added was some mozzarella cheese.  

For dinner the following night we used the delicious tomato sauce and had spaghetti and meatballs.  For the first time every, my youngest son actually ate a full plate of spaghetti. He usually will just pick at it or will have minimal sauce on his pasta. 

This was a huge hit and will be added to my main recipe collection.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
