Step 2. 
Cook on medium-high heat for 10 min or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Step 3. 
Fill rolls with meatballs and sauce; top with cheese.
You can also top with some corn relish, or in my case caramelized onions to add a little extra flavour.  For sides steamed vegetables, salad or potato wedges work perfectly.
