  • Skillet
  • 9x13" Baking Dish


  • 12 Italian meatballs
  • 24 ounces marinara sauce divided
  • 12 Kings Hawaiian rolls
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons butter melted
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Heat oven to 375.
  • Place the 12 frozen meatballs on a microwave safe plate. Thaw for about 30 seconds, turn over and thaw for another 30 seconds.
  • Then place the meatballs in a skillet with 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce.
  • Cook on medium high heat until the meatballs are heated through and covered in sauce.
  • While the meatballs are simmering, cut the rolls in half leaving them attached.
  • Place the bottom section of the rolls in a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Set a heated meatball that is covered in marinara sauce on each roll.
  • Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese over all of the meatballs. Place the top part of the rolls on top (they should still be attached to each other).
  • Combine the melted butter, garlic salt and Italian seasoning together in a small bowl.
  • Baste the top of the rolls with the buttery mixture. Then sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover the pan loosely with foil and bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake an additional 4 minutes.
  • Cut the rolls apart and serve warm.
