Meatball Subs = My Husbands Love Language.

Today I may have discovered the secret to a happy marriage.  Last night my husband and I were grocery shopping. I sent him to grab some bread "real quick" for grilled cheese. My husband came back with sub rolls and white bread. [I think he's trying to tell me he didn't like this bread!]

Anyway! we purchased both types of bread, and I quickly began to re-think my menu for the week.

Thus the idea of Meatball Subs came up.

First, I must tell you that the idea of soaking bread in tomato sauce and cheese absolutely grosses me out. I mean, I get nauseated when I try to make french toast! (Seriously, I'm really grossed out by sogginess).

Anyway, tonight I faced my fear of soggy bread and made my very own version of meatball subs!

Was
So
Yummy!

I'm pretty sure the best part of the whole dinner was watching my husband enjoy every single bite, and thanking me for making him a meatball sub. I honestly never knew just HOW much he loved a meatball sub!

I guess after 13 years together, we still have so much to learn.

Anyway, here is the recipe that inspired my dish.
Rachel Ray's Recipe! 

Although I'm pretty sure Rachel Ray's recipe would have been very good, I made up my own version (using her's as a guide).

Meat Ball:
Ground Beef
1 Onion
Red Pepper Flakes (1 tsp)
Garlic
1 Whisked Egg
Dried Parsley (enough)
Romano Cheese
Pepper
Italian Bread Crumbs

*Mix all ingredients together and bake at 425 until brown

Sauce:
Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce

Cheese:
American Cheese

It was simple, I used only ingredients I had on hand, and boy was my husband thrilled!



How about you, have you tried any new recipes lately? Have you learned something new about your spouse recently?
