Meatball Subs

This one comes from my mom. They're a big hit with the whole family.
6 sub rolls
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
salt and pepper
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 lb ground beef
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups green bell pepper, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
cheese (optional)
Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce, 1-2 cloves of the garlic, 1/4 cup of the onion, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Shape into small meatballs and place on a greased broiler pan.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, saute remaining onion, 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, and bell pepper in a small amount of oil. Add remaining tomato sauce and basil. Add cooked meatballs. Simmer for a few minutes. Spoon onto split rolls. Top with cheese if desired (I use provolone).
Serve as is, or place under the broiler until cheese melts.
