Expert Tips

*For meatball melts, arrange the sandwiches on a cookie sheet and broil 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese bubbles.

Garlic-flavored tomato pasta sauce gives these sandwiches a flavor boost, but any sauce works just as well; try meat, mushroom, pepper and onion or garden vegetable.

Serve these hot and hearty sandwiches with crisp carrot sticks, sliced pears and hot apple cider.
