Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 (19.5-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 4 sub rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 cup shredded pizza cheese
  • grated Parmesan and fresh bail leaves, if desired

Directions

  1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Pinch and squeeze meat from each sausage into hot pan to form small meatballs; these will not be perfectly round. Cook meatballs for about 12 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked thoroughly. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.
  2. Add sauce and stir to coat. Cook until sauce is hot. Stir in basil. Spoon meatballs into roll; top with cheese. Place under heated broiler for about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with grated Parmesan and fresh basil leaves, if desired.
