Our Organic Canned Italian Chopped Tomatoes are made with 100% imported organic Southern Italian tomatoes. They're preservative-free, simply crafted organic tomatoes imported from Italy! Chef Neil Fusco's goal is to bring the true taste of Italy into your home with only the healthiest ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

  • Two (2) 14 oz. cans of Organico Bello Imported Southern Italian Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 4 sliced french bread or sub rolls
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (diced)
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, panko bread crumbs, fresh parsley, egg, and parmesan cheese in a bowl.
  2. Roll the meatball mixture into large balls, depending on the desired size. Heat extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, add the meatballs and cook for 5-7 minutes, turning once to brown both sides.
  3. Meanwhile, make your own homemade marinara sauce (Organico Bello chopped tomatoes, garlic powder, salt and pepper) in a large pot. Once the meatballs have browned, remove from the oil and place in the pot of simmering marinara sauce. Let cook on low heat for about 20 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
  4. Cut bread in half, making sure not to cut all the way through. Spread butter over both sides of the bread. Put the oven on the broil setting. Heat until the butter is completely melted and remove from the oven. Watch carefully as it can easily burn.
  5. Place cooked meatballs and sauce onto the bread and generously cover with mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Top with fresh parsley and serve immediately with extra sauce on the side for dipping. 

 

BUON APPETITO!
