There are few sandwich combos more satisfying in this world than toasty bread, gooey cheese, and saucy meatballs. Here, we channel those winning flavors and textures into subs that are ready in just 10 minutes from start to finish—that’s faster than it takes to order out from your favorite sandwich shop! Our secret? The ultimate weeknight meatball hack: pre-cooked turkey meatballs, which we toss in an herby tomato sauce, then layer onto garlic-butter-toasted baguettes with melty mozz. It doesn’t get any better than that, folks.

• Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Peel and mince or grate garlic. • Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add half the garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Stir in tomato paste and half the Italian Seasoning (all for 4 servings). Cook, stirring, until combined. • Add meatballs*, ½ tsp sugar, salt, pepper, and ½ cup water. (For 4, use 1 tsp sugar and 1 cup water.) Cook, stirring, until sauce is slightly thickened and meatballs are warmed through, 1-2 minutes. • Stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) and turn off heat.
• In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) and remaining garlic; season with salt and pepper. Microwave until butter is just softened, 10-15 seconds. • Slice baguettes lengthwise, stopping before you get all the way through; spread cut sides with garlic butter. Place cut sides up on a baking sheet. • Toast on middle rack of oven until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. • Carefully fill toasted baguettes with meatballs and sauce, then sprinkle with mozzarella. • Return to middle rack until cheese melts, 2-3 minutes more.
• Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss mixed greens with Italian dressing until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
• Divide subs and salad between plates. Serve
