Secret to this is to cook, cook, cook this sauce! Very good but started out very thin. Reducing the sauce deepens the flavor and made it much richer than I thought the finished product was going to be. Good knife and fork sandwich and quick to boot!

We really enjoyed this! I added Italian seasoning, garlic powder and black pepper to the sauce for a little more flavor, and I put banana peppers on my sub. Although it wasn't really anything special, it was a wonderfully easy and surprisingly tasty Monday night meal. I will probably make this again when I am looking for something that is super easy and a bit different from what I normally cook.

I made this recipe as part of the allstar assignment. I thawed the meatballs and put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, added a can of stewed tomatoes and 1 cup of small onions. Cooked on low for 6 hours. In this time it did help to thicken up the watery progresso sauce. I did find the taste on the bland side, but a hand full of fresh basil and plenty of pepper kicked it up a bit. (This is not my personal choice of recipe would prefer to make my own sauce) but if you want something quick and simple, with a few little changes it makes an acceptable meal.

Made this recipe as written and grand daughter, age 8, loved it. She said that it tasted just like a bomber one of her friends mom makes. I let meatballs cool down a bit in the sauce and it seemed to thicken up a bit. You can change this up by adding more toppings but the sauce, cheese and meatballs complimented each other.

This was OK, but I wouldn't say it was outstanding. I know Progresso won't like hearing this, but I didn't find much to differentiate their Fire Roasted Tomato Recipe Starter from a can/jar of pizza sauce that you'd buy at the store. Another thing that I wasn't crazy about was the consistency. It's too thin, really wasn't suitable for spooning over the meatballs, just made the bread soggy. In spite of that, it's Friday night when I seldom cook much, and it was an easy dinner served with a big tossed salad. I used mozzarella and topped with my homemade pickled jalapeños. Doubtful I'd make again.
