Meatball Parm Heroes

Meatball Parm Heroeswith Fire-Roasted Tomato Sauce and Charred Broccoli

There's something irresistible about a crispy, toasted hero packed with meatballs, tomato sauce, and gooey cheese. Here, we're giving the classic comfort dish a few cheffy upgrades, swapping out the sweet marinara for garlicky, fire-roasted tomato sauce, and blending the beef meatballs with ricotta, Parmesan, parsley, and breadcrumbs. Then, we're layering on provolone and mozzarella and sending the sandwiches back to the oven until the cheese is melty and bubbling. Paired with a seasonal side of oven-charred broccoli florets, this feast proves that not all heroes wear capes.
