Warm up, save money: eat meatballs

Pandolfi’s Deli makes a memorable meatball sub.

​National food-trend expert Nancy Kruse sees meatballs in a whole new way lately: “Familiar and comforting to patrons,” Kruse writes in Nation’s Restaurant News, “[meatballs] often provide a sense of fun — a nostalgic quality that makes customers smile…. And their winning combination of low food cost and high customer satisfaction makes everybody happy.”

It’s true that a big, juicy meatball, whether tucked into a grinder sandwich or perched on top of a bowl of pasta, can make for a filling meal. Cheap, too!
