Turkey Meatball Subs with Sauces’n Love Pomodoro & Basilico Sauce

Using turkey instead of beef is a fun dinner time twist to your regular meatball sub. Because turkey has less fat, some people find it less flavorful, so have fun with this recipe and add some of your favorite herbs and spices. For spice lovers add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne or chili powder. For herb lovers add oregano, tarragon, basil or marjoram.
