Easiest Meatball Sub Recipe Ever with Cucina Antica

I stumbled upon this recipe like I do most of them. Because I did not have all of the traditional ingredients in the house for meatballs. I had the ground beef, the egg and the salt and pepper, but I had no breadcrumbs to bind them together. So, I opened the fridge and thought hard. Grabbing the Parmesan cheese, I crossed my fingers.

Turns out, this is now my favorite way to make meatballs. I have not used breadcrumbs in them for years now.
