It’s hard to turn down a good meatball sandwich. This wild game version is made with a mixture of venison, snow goose and classic Italian spices and herbs. Toasted in a soft hoagie bun with tangy marinara, fresh mozzarella and aged Parmesan cheese, this meatball sandwich has Subway beat. If you make a big batch of meatballs, serve the rest over pasta noodles.
