Turkey Meatball Subs

You can still enjoy a meatball sub while watching what you eat! Simply use lean ground turkey to prepare the meatballs and use cheese sparingly.  I always have these meatballs on hand for either subs, pasta or just on their own.   They are easy to prepare a large batch and freeze portions for any day.

    Are the five WW points with or without the roll?
