open faced chicken meatball sandwich

Chicken meatball open faced sandwich.
We used Chicken meatballs for this recipe. You could also use turkey meatballs or beef if you like.
 These were a bit expensive, but a much better diet choice. :-)

This is a simple recipe, and oh so good!
1 package meatballs.
1 jar marinara sauce.
 2 sub buns, cut in half.
2% shredded mozzarella cheese.
      In a sauce pan, heat sauce and meatballs until hot and bubbly.
Spread some of the  sauce on buns.

Cut meatballs in half, and place along bun.
Top with more sauce.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Place in a pre-heated oven, (350) until cheese is melted.
Serve warm.
We had this with our home made coleslaw.

Grilled Zucchini, Onion, and Red Peppers with grilled Pork Cutlets and grill baked Potatoes

If you love grilling, and who doesn't! You're going to LOVE this!
4 zucchini
2 red peppers
1 large onion
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/8 cup chopped basil
1/8 cup chopped oregano

Trim the ends of the zucchini. cut in long 1/4 inch slabs.
Trim, core and stem the red peppers. Cut length-wise into 1-2 inch slabs.
Peel onion and lay on its side. Cut 1/4 -1/2 inch slab circles.
Place veggies on a baking sheet. Combine all other ingredients and drizzle over veggies.
Place veggies on a hot grill. I used a grill tray to keep from losing veggies through the grill racks.
Cook on both sides until tender and slightly blackened. Brush with remaining oil/vinegar mix when you turn them.
We pared them with grilled pork cutlets, and grill baked potatoes for a scrumptious meal!
