Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Line a sheet pan with parchment or foil.
Using a tablespoon, scoop up the turkey mixture and shape it into 12 meatballs. (They may be a bit sticky, but you can rub a little olive oil between your palms.)
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add the meatballs and cook until browned on the first side, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the second side, 3 minutes more. Add the pizza sauce and turn down the heat to low. Simmer, flipping the meatballs halfway through, until firm and no longer pink in the center, 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, in a sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the broccoli and 2 tablespoons water, and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the juice of 1 lemon and season with salt.
Split 3 rolls in half, and pull out some of the bread from the inside to hollow out slightly. Place the rolls cut-side up on the prepared sheet pan and arrange 1½ slices provolone on each top half. Bake until the cheese is melted and the bread is starting to brown around the edges, about 4 minutes.
To assemble the subs, divide the meatballs among the bottom halves of the rolls, spoon some sauce over the meatballs, and top with the cheesy halves of the rolls. Cut the subs in half and transfer to plates. Pile the broccoli alongside, and serve warm.
Contains: milk, eggs, wheat.
Note: The turkey meatball mix may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
