After my party this past weekend I had a whole lot of sauce and meatballs left over. I didnt want them to go to waste and yet another meatballs sub was just not happening. I had homemade sauce and meatballs for the party so I used them in this dish. However you can use your favorite sauce and frozen meatballs for a quick dinner that feeds a good size group.
