Italian Hero Sandwich

Classic, iconic and legendary is the Italian Hero Sandwich. Transform your kitchen is the most authentic Italian deli.Semolina bread, crunchy on the outside, soft and oh-so-flavorful in the inside.This is my version of the best New York Italian sub:

Spicy arrabbiata pesto. Roasted bell peppers marinated in garlic and basil. Fresh arugula and thinly sliced red onion dressed with a luscious extra virgin olive oil from Liguria and a rich balsamic vinegar from Modena. Salame Toscano, Pecorino and the most delicious mortadella.

Add a glass of red wine and your life is complete.

Buon Appetito.
