  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Make the meatballs. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, chicken sausage, salt, pepper, egg, fennel seeds, Parmesan, garlic, basil, and bread crumbs. Mix well, then, with wet hands, form into golf ball–sized meatballs and place on the prepared sheet pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
  2. Add marinara and meatballs to a large saucepan and bring to a low simmer. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. It's time to assemble some sandwiches. Preheat the oven to broil. Slice the hoagie rolls lengthwise. Brush the insides of the bread with the olive oil and place, cut-side up, on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until the bread is toasted, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add 3-4 meatballs to each roll, sliced bell peppers, and top with two pieces of provolone cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and browned, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle each sub with parsley & enjoy!
