For this recipe you’ll need jumbo meatballs. I buy the Simek’s Italian Style Jumbo meatballs. You’ll also need a cup of marinara sauce, a package of wheat Hawaiian buns (or any dinner rolls will work), 6 slices mozzarella cheese, 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons chopped garlic, 2 tablespoons chopped basil and 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese.

First preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then pour one cup of marinara sauce into a saucepan along with 12 jumbo meatballs. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes until meatballs are heated through.

While the meatballs are cooking you can prep your pan and your rolls. Grease a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Cut the sheet of dinner rolls or Hawaiian buns in half the long ways so you only have the bottoms of the buns. Place into prepared pan.

Once meatballs have finished heating, place one meatball on top of each bun. Top with any remaining sauce.
