Meatball Sub | Gennaro Contaldo & 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!

  1. Dear Gennaro, my husband and I just made this for dinner and it was bellissimo! We had to say thank you!
    And Jamie, Thank you very very much for introducing us to your gem of a mentor!
    Much love from Saudi Arabia

  2. Haha I love how his thick Italian accent sometimes slips into a cockney London accent 😀
    I'm going to try this sauce recipe. Meatballs are already how I make them but the sauce is a bit different. I like the idea of adding carrot and celery as a base
