These were great! I only had shred­ded moz­zarel­la so that is what I used. I will be mak­ing these again. thanks for post­ing


Why don’t you just cook the meat­balls in the crock­pot? Will the juices make the sauce to runny?Couldn’t you com­pen­sate for that my adding some toma­to paste?


The sauce isn’t real­ly what I was look­ing for in. Meat­ball hoagie bit would make a killer slop­py Joe sauce.
