1 pound ground sausage

1 lb ground beef

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

Kosher salt and black pepper

Tomato Sauce:

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large Spanish onion, finely chopped

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon Calabrian chili flakes

2 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

2 teaspoons oregano

Salt and freshly ground pepper

3 tablespoons parsley, chopped

6 basil leaves, chiffonade

Hoagie Rolls

Provolone or White Cheddar cheese sliced


Preheat oven to 400F.

Put sausage and ground beef in a large mixing bowl, with eggs, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, parmesan

cheese, garlic, breadcrumbs, parsley, and salt and pepper. Mix until well combined, taking care to not over mix the

meat. Divide into meatballs, roughly 2-3 tablespoons each. Place on a lined baking sheet and roast about 12

minutes. Break a meatball in half to check doneness, before removing them from the oven.

Meanwhile, in a large dutch oven, heat olive oil. Add onion and saute until soft and translucent. Add garlic, red

pepper flakes, and Calabrian chili flakes, and work them into the onions. Add the tomatoes, oregano, and 1

teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper; and increase heat to bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until

sauce thickens and meatballs are done.

Remove the meatballs and place them in the sauce. Top with parsley and basil, let simmer 3 minutes.

Cut hoagie buns in half, and place meatballs down the center. Cover with sauce and sliced cheese. Place

sandwiches on a lined baking sheet and put them in the oven, just until the cheese melts.

Serve, topped with additional basil, if desired.
