Mini Meatball Subs

"@tuttorossotomatoes @thefeedfeed (#ad) For me, a game day is about more than just the football… it’s all about the food 🏈 The snacks and apps we munch on while watching our team (hopefully) win. It’s kind of a big deal. Luckily, I use my favorite tomatoes from Tuttorosso to level up my game day recipes. These are the freshest, tastiest, and most authentic tomatoes that add the perfect flavor to anything you create. Plus, I love a company that cares about its products. Tuttorosso tomatoes are made with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, which is something I am all about. Take a look at today’s game day app! We’re snacking on mini meatballs subs loaded with cheese, roasted onions, and peppers, and topped with Tuttorosso Tomato Sauce. Such a crowd pleaser! With a plate THIS good, it doesn’t matter what the score of the game is because we’re still winning 😋 #feedfeed #tuttorossotomatoes"
