If you have made meatball sauce and are looking for a fun way to use your leftover sauce I have the perfect recipe for your leftovers…..Meatball subs! Yes, I was thinking the same thing you are right now, like why haven’t you done this before or why don’t you do it more often. This makes for a delicious and quick weeknight or Friday night meal. All you need to do is add some cheese, bake in the oven and top with some fresh basil.

A salad is always a good option if you are looking for a quick dinner solution. This is another great way to use leftover roast chicken as well. If you are not using leftovers try marinating your chicken the night before so that when you get home all you would have to do is throw it in the oven. For this salad I used Traders joe’s BBQ rub and seasoning with coffee and garlic. This seasoning is so amazing and it elevates the flavor of the salad. I used a light vinaigrette made with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and pepper.

Small bites are always fun to eat and they usually involve very simple ingredients. Roast baby potatoes seasoned with garlic, rosemary and pepper. Slice a small baguette, toast and top with chopped fresh tomatoes, basil, onions and feta or mozzarella cheese. I also roasted some chicken wings together with the potatoes and that was our dinner. Fun fresh and delicious.

  1. I like to cook a whole chicken at the beginning of the week and use it for a few meals throughout the week. Even if there is only a little left over after dinner, I can still use it for a salad or something for lunch the next day. Having a meal plan is half the battle!

  2. I am always looking to save time in the evenings after school. It’s always so busy and I’m usually running around all day long. I lvoe that these meal options are easy, delicious and wholesome. I would love to try the meatball sub!

  3. I’m forever looking for easy and delicious weeknight meals .. these look wonderful! At our house he’d do the meatball sandwich and I’d have the salad. Thank-you (as always) for your wonderful ideas to help us in the kitchen!

  4. These look like good recipes. I’m always looking for quick meals because I get home later due to my travel time of an hour each way to and from work. Will definitely need to try these out. Thanks for sharing!

  5. These look and sounds delicious. I’m not much of a cook on weekdays, but these I might be able to handle. I love to try new easy ways to get my family to enjoy dinner together.

  6. I love a good meatball sub loaded with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. The mixed salad makes a perfect side dish or alternative with the added chicken. Super easy and delicious dinner that pleases just about everyone.
