Meatballs are great with pasta, over polenta or even by themselves. But one of my favorite ways to enjoy them is on a soft bun with marinara sauce, creamy ricotta and fresh basil.

Ingredients

    • 6 sesame buns
    • Leftover marinara sauce, warmed
    • Leftover meatballs, warmed
    • 18 ounces fresh ricotta cheese
    • 12 ounces grated parmesan cheese
    • 6 whole fresh basil leaves, for garnish
    • Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Preparation

Cut the sesame buns in half. Add warm tomato sauce and 2 meatballs to each sandwich. Top with 3 ounces fresh ricotta and 1½-2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese. Garnish with basil leaves, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve.
