Meatball subs ----> Spaghetti and Meatballs


Meatballs (Italian style) frozen
1 jar Spaghetti Sauce
Sub Bread
Sliced  or shredded cheese
Spaghetti or favorite long pasta.

For Subs: 

Cook Meatballs until tender with the spaghetti sauce on Medium heat. Simply spoon meatballs onto sliced sub bread and add cheese on top.  (save any left over meatballs and sauce for next meal)

For Spaghetti:

Cook spaghetti according to package, then mix in leftover meat and sauce.

Spaghetti is one of those things that tastes better the older it gets.  So I would suggest that you put leftovers in freeze-able 1 serving containers and use for lunches or dinners on those days you just want to cook. Just reheat in microwave.  They are much cheaper and healthier than the high salt frozen meals.
