Italian Meatball Subs - Early Bird Review and Giveaway

It's that time again! 
Time for another cookbook review and giveaway!



I've got to hand it to Gooseberry Patch....
they publish one awesome cookbook after another.
But, I do believe that this one is the cutest!

If you're a fan of Garfield...or not, 

you're going to absolutely LOVE this Gooseberry Patch cookbook
Garfield...Recipes with Cattitude!


Since Garfield is such a impatient feline....
I know he wouldn't want me to piddle around and not get to the recipes. 
Well...hold your horses Garfield,
I've got to tell them a little bit about this wonderful cookbook first!

First off...Garfield has many handy tips like this one.....

I completely agree with you my furry friend!



Such a great idea! No wonder you're such an expert with food!


He acts like he's always tired...
but you know he'd try any new recipe.
You only have to ask him once!




Ok...so now that you've had a little peek inside this cookbook,
I'll tell you how you can purchase one for yourself or as a gift for a friend.
You can click on either one of these sites and preorder it. 
It won't be available until June 1st!





Ok, now on to the first recipe!

Italian Meatball Subs



1 Onion, sliced
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped (I sliced mine)
2 T. Water
2 15 oz cans pizza sauce
24 meatballs, thawed if frozen
4 Italian hard rolls, partially sliced and hollowed out
(I used our favorite hoagie buns)
1/2 to 3/4 c shredded provolone cheese
(I used sliced)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine onion, pepper and water.
Cover and cook just until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes; drain.
Stir in pizza sauce and meatballs.
Simmer until hot and bubbly, 5 to 10 minutes.
Fill each roll with 6 meatballs, top with some of the sauce.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Close rolls and place in an ungreased 12x9 baking pan.
Bake at 400* for 10 to 15 minutes, until rolls are toasty and cheese is melted.
Serve with remaining sauce for dipping. 
Makes 4 servings.
