Gennaro’s Italian Meatball Sub | ft. Jamie Oliver

Gennaro’s got an Italian meatball recipe that’s so good even Jamie can’t resist swinging by for a bite.
Tender, juicy meatballs in a thick homemade tomato sauce covered in melted mozzarella and served in a New York style sub with handfuls of fresh rocket.
As sandwiches go this one will probably be the best you’ve ever tasted. Get cooking!

I’m no master chef but I get the definite impression that the sub that went into the oven isn’t the one that came out lol.

his accent is so confusing. it’s Italian at one point and then sounds very english

I cannot stand tinned tomatoes! I think it is the worst thing that could ever happen to tomatoes! The rest of it is yum 🙂

Have a Nice says:

So can you let this cool and store in the fridge to use at a later date or do you have to use it all in one go?

IsaakHunt says:

Hah! The moment I thought “I think it would be great, if you’d pop it in the oven for a few minutes!” – boom, it’s in the oven. Then I thought “Rucola might work nicely on this!” – boom, it’s on.

Next time I have some friends over, I know what I’ll prepare.

Navaneeth Ramesh says:
