Aaaawh, this was soooo good. How I end up try n this recipe I was out of marinera and spagetti sauce hungry and been craving meatballs all week, so I decided to give it a try, and boy was I glad I did. I topped the sub with grated parmasean and sweet and spicy banana peppers, that's how I make it at the sub shops too. Yummy. Thanks so much for sharing.
