Mozzarella Meatball Sandwiches

You'll only need 3 ingredients to make these hot-from-the-oven sandwiches, and they're ready in just 20 minutes, making them perfect for busy weeknights. Meatballs are ​simmered in our delicious Italian sauce, then sandwiched in hot, cheesy garlic bread- we loved this recipe so much, we put it on our Prego® Italian Sauce labels- and we think you'll love it, too!

Prep Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 20 Minutes

Serves: 4 people


  • 1 package (11.75 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Mozzarella and Garlic Bread

  • 1 cup Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce (or your favorite Prego® Italian Sauce)

  • 12 (1/2-ounce each) frozen fully cooked beef meatballs


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Remove the bread from the bag. Carefully separate the bread halves with a fork. Place the 2 bread halves, cut side up, onto a baking sheet.

  2. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bread is heated through.

  3. While the oven is heating, start the sauce and meatballs. Cook in a 2-quart saucepan over low heat for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are heated through. Spoon the meatball mixture onto the bottom bread half. Top with the top bread half. Cut into quarters.


  • Customize these sandwiches by topping with even more cheese (try Parmesan or provolone), spinach, arugula or chopped fresh basil.
