When I went back the next day, the platform remained the same, with the chicken being replaced by meatballs, creating a classic meatball marinara sub. The sweetness of the onion and crunch of the green pepper provide a perfect foil to the flavorful and subtly sweet marinara sauce.
Meatballs come in all sizes and textures, and these were the perfect texture and fit for the bread. I went a la carte, and this was another keeper.
