We’re creating our meatballs and marinara sauce from scratch in this recipe so we can keep track of the flavour and make sure everything is extra tasty! These creamy meatball boats will wow you! What’s not to enjoy, after all? Did I mention the melted cheese, meatballs, and tomato sauce?


I used eight mini hoagie rolls for this recipe.

12 asiago cheese slices

Ground beef, 470 grams


An extra-large egg.


a quarter cup of parmesan cheese

1 big spoon garlic, minced

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 heaping spoon of fresh parsley, chopped

Season with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F and coat the bottom and sides of a medium baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2: I put the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, minced garlic, parmesan cheese, and parsley in a mixing bowl and mixed everything with my hands.

Step 3: After that, I seasoned the meatballs with sea salt and black pepper and began shaping them with an ice cream scoop.

Step 4: Next, I heated olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat for no more than one minute.

Step 5: Next, I placed the meatballs in the skillet one by one and cooked them for a maximum of 5 minutes until both sides were browned.

Step 6: After that, I moved the meatballs to the prepared pan, which had been lined with parchment paper, and roasted them for about 12 minutes.

Step 7: I cut an oval on the top of the roll, leaving about 12 inches on the ends and sides. I scooped the bottom half of the roll but didn’t cut into it.

Step 8: Using a knife, I hollowed out the end of the roll and placed it on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 9: I inserted 1 piece of cheese into the hollowed-out position at this stage. In the microwave, I cooked for another 8 minutes.

Step 10: I then put two big spoons into the mixture. On top of the cheese, there’s a layer of marinara sauce. I then put grated parmesan cheese on top of the marinara.

Step 11: I then put it back in the oven for another 8 minutes to bake.
