Zucchini Meatball Sandwich


How to make Zucchini Meatball Sandwich.



  • 4 cups quality marinara sauce
  • 4 demi-baguettes
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Parsley for garnish
  • For the meatballs:
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 3/4 pounds ground pork
  • 3/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 egg
  • Olive oil

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Sprinkle the grated zucchini with salt and squeeze to release excess liquid. Mix the rest of meatball ingredients together in a large bowl, mix in the zucchini, then form into meatballs.
  2. Heat a high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to the pan and brown meatballs on all sides. Lower heat to medium-low and add sauce. Simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  3. To make meatball subs: slice the baguette lengthwise on the top, not all the way through. Place meatballs in the bread and top with sauce and cheese. Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted and golden brown. Garnish with parsley.
