  • In a large bowl combine the meatball ingredients. Shape the mixture into 24 1 1/2-inch balls and place them snugly into the prepared pan in rows, making sure the balls are touching. Bake until the meatballs are done (160°F), about 20 minutes.

  • While the meatballs are in the oven, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, reduce the heat to medium-low and sauté until soft, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté 2 minutes.

  • Add the crushed tomatoes, basil, and pepper. Bring to boiling. Add the meatballs and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes, stirring gently occasionally.

  • Spoon meatball mixture into buns. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon mozzarella.
