  1. In a bowl, combine the meat, breadcrumbs, egg, mustard, and spices. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. With lightly oiled hands, shape each meatball with about 22.5 ml (1 1/2 tablespoons) of the meat mixture.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet, brown the meatballs in half the oil. Set aside on a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, brown the mushrooms, peppers, and onion in the remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Return the meatballs to the skillet and add the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for about 10 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Adjust the seasoning.
  5. Slice the rolls open and toast them. On a plate, layer the cheese and lettuce in the rolls. Top with meatballs.
