For this recipe I started with frozen meatballs. To warm the meatballs, place them in a large stock pot. Pour a jar of spaghetti sauce overtop of the meatballs. Bring sauce to a boil and then cover with a lid. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Make sure you stir the meatballs on occasion.

I used the broiler to toast the top of the slider rolls and melt the cheese. It only takes a minute or two under the broiler!
