Mini Meatball Sub
 
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds 80 percent lean ground beef
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups tomato sauce
In a large bowl, mix together beef, ricotta, eggs, breadcrumbs, parsley, oregano, salt, red-pepper flakes, and fennel with your hands until fully incorporated. Roll mixture into firmly packed 1 1/2-inch balls. Place meatballs in a baking dish drizzled with olive oil. Be sure to line them touching each other. Bake until meatballs are firm and a thermometer inserted into the center of a meatball reads 165 degrees. Meanwhile, heat tomato sauce in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and stir frequently. Remove meatballs from oven and carefully drain excess grease from pan. Pour heated sauce over meatballs and return to oven; cook for 15 minutes more.
