Slow-Cooker Meatball Sandwiches

Our approach to meatball sandwiches is a simple one: Cook the meatballs low and slow, load into buns, and top with provolone and pepperoncini. —Stacie Nicholls, Spring Creek, NV

2 pkg. (12 oz. each) frozen fully cooked Italian meatballs, thawed

2 jars (24 oz. each) marinara sauce

1. Place meatballs and sauce in a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low for 3-4 hours or until heated through.
