New England Style Italian Sub


A Note from Feedfeed

Every city has their favorite Italian-style sub, and this version is a nod to the classic New England Style Italian Sub. It can be found in delis all over the Northeast, but we took a few liberties (sorry sandwich purists!). We swapped standard black olives for a punchy kalamata olive and oregano spread, so you get flavor in every bite.
