Today, I decided to try a new take on a classic, and classically difficult, dish: Eggplant Parmesan. I usually stick to ordering this in restaurants because it is such a pain in the booty to make,.

That made me so happy, that I’m sure you could imagine my extreme disappointment when I looked at the weather…and saw it was only 6 degrees outside. So, I decided to cheer myself up with some Italian comfort food: a classic Meatball Sub. It managed to cheer me up so much that I decided to share it with you all today! Also, trust me on this, it tastes even better smothered in Mama Jess Garden Organic Pasta Sauce. The homemade meatballs are my mom’s recipe and they are so juicy and delicious, that I’m surprised she...
