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