I’m all about easy family dinners. And tasty dinners with high quality ingredients are even better! With busy school nights, I am always on the lookout for dinners with fewer ingredients that take less time in the kitchen. These Garlic and Parmesan Meatball Sliders made with Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce take traditional meatball sandwiches to the next level. They are bite sized, making them a great fit for families with children.

As a mom, I like that it has no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.

Place the meatballs in a large pot. Pour the Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce into the pot over the meatballs. Simmer on medium-low until the meatballs are cooked thoroughly.
In a small bowl, melt the butter until it is liquid. Add the garlic and Parmesan along with a dash of Pink Himalayan sea salt. Mix completely.
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Place the rolls on a small baking sheet, cutting the rolls in half.
Brush the butter mixture over the top of the rolls and on the inside of the bottom half of the roll.
Optional: If you’ve chosen to add cheese, place a small piece of cheese on the bottom half of the roll at this point, as well.
Place in the pre-heated oven. Heat until the rolls are warmed through the the cheese is slightly melted.
Remove the rolls from the oven. Add a meatball with Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce in the center of each roll.
Top the meatball with a dash of Parmesan cheese.
Pair with your family’s favorite sides for an easy family dinner.
