Make golf ball-size meatballs and dredge in flour until lightly coated. Place on baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let sit for 15 minutes.

For the sauce mix all ingredients together and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add meatballs to sauce.

Place sliced cheese on buns and toast in oven at 400 for 4-5 minutes. Place meatballs in buns and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Makes about 30 meatballs and 7-9 sandwiches
