Putting meatballs covered in sauce on ciabatta bread makes the best sandwich. The bread hold up really well. It doesn't get soggy like some bread would. Set out a plate of toppings for everyone to choose from to put on their sandwiches. Sliced black olives, provolone cheese, and shredded lettuce all taste good with them.
