Ingredients

  • 2

    pounds bulk Italian hot sausage

  • 1/2

    pound smoked mozzarella cheese, cut into 12 cubes

  • 1

    tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus more for drizzling

  • 1

    onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    cloves garlic, chopped

  • One

    28-ounce can Italian crushed tomatoes

  • 1/4

    cup oil-cured sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

  • 1/4

    cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • Four

    7- to 8-inch-long crusty sub rolls

  • 1/3

    cup basil leaves (a generous handful), torn or shredded

  • Freshly grated pecorino-romano cheese, for topping

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425°. Place a bowl of warm water on a work surface. Arrange a rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Divide the sausage into 4 equal portions. Form 3 balls from each portion, nestling 1 mozzarella cube into the center of each meatball and sealing the meat around it. Coat the meatballs with a drizzle of EVOO, place on the rack on the baking sheet and roast until firm, about 18 minutes. While the meatballs are cooking, in a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon EVOO, 1 turn of the pan, over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes and olives; season with salt and pepper and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 7 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the oven, turn off the heat, add the rolls and bake until crisp, 3 minutes. Split the rolls; top each with 3 meatballs and some sauce, basil and pecorino.
