1/4 teaspoon each dried basil, thyme and rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 jar (26 ounces) meatless spaghetti sauce, divided
1 pound ground turkey
4 to 6 submarine or hoagie buns, split
1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
In a large bowl, combine the onion, green pepper, garlic, parsley and seasonings. Stir in 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.
Shape into 1-in. balls. Place on a greased broiler pan. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 8 minutes. Turn and broil 3-5 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink.
Transfer the meatballs to a large saucepan; add remaining spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve meatballs and sauce on buns. Sprinkle with cheese.
