|Good Fella Italian Herb|
Heat ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 5 minutes, then stir in garlic and season with Good Fella and red pepper flakes. Sauté another minute, then set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a large mixing bowl, add the ground beef, ground pork, and Italian sausage, eggs, parmesan, parsley, and bread crumbs. Mix a few times by hand, then add in the cooled onion mixture. Mix well by hand, then add milk, and incorporate well by hand.
Shape meat into golf ball-sized portions, then heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining olive oil, then brown the meatballs. Transfer to a sheet tray and bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, warm marinara in a skillet over low heat. Add the meatballs to the marinara when they are finished baking. Simmer in the sauce for 15 minutes.
- Set the oven to broil. Brush hoagie rolls with olive oil, then place on a sheet tray under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, to lightly toast. Remove from the oven, then top each roll with arugula, 3 meatballs, marinara, and 2 slices of provolone.
- Place underneath the broiler for 1 minute to melt the cheese. Remove sandwiches from the oven and serve warm with cracked Good Fella and fresh basil.
