Step 1: Make The Meatball Mixture
* 1 Tbsp olive oil
* ½ peeled onion
* 1 cups milk
* 2 ½ cups fresh breadcrumbs
* 3 lbs 85/15 beef
* 3 eggs
* ½ cup minced garlic
* ½ cup finely chopped basil
* ½ cup chopped parsley
* 1 Tbsp chili flake
* 1 Tbsp dried oregano
* 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
* 1 ½ tsp salt
* 1 block low moisture mozzarella cheese

1) Heat the olive oil in a large skillet then grate your onion into the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until all the moisture cooks out.
2) While the onions are cooking, add your bread crumbs to a large mixing bowl and pour the milk over top. Toss with your hands so all the bread soaks.
3) To the mixing bowl, add meat, garlic, basil, parsley, chili flake, oregano, eggs, parm, and salt. When the onions have slightly cooled, add them too.
4) Mash the meatball mixture together with either a giant whisk or your hands, whatever works.
5) Let the mixture set in the fridge for at least an hour.
6) Cut the block of mozzarella into squares.
7) Stack meat into a large cylinder on the shawarma spit, along with the cheese and cook.

Step 2: Make the sauce
* ¼ cup butter
* 1 jalapeno, minced
* 6 finely diced scallions
* ½ red bell pepper
* 2 Tbsp minced garlic
* 2 28-oz cans crushed tomatoes
* 2 Tbsp harissa (optional)
* 1 tsp Salt
* 2 tsp Sugar

1) Add the butter to a large sauce pot and let melt over medium heat. Sautee the jalapenos, scallions, red bell pepper, and garlic until softened, about 4 minutes, then add salt. If you’re using harissa, add that here.
2) Add sugar and canned tomatoes, then use a potato masher to break up the tomatoes. Do that for about 5 minutes until it looks like a sauce, then turn the heat to low and simmer for 2 hours until alot of the tomato juice has evaporated.

Step 3: Assemble the sandwich
* 1 hoagie roll
* 3 slices provolone picante
* 1 small bowl of ricotta
* Chopped parsley for garnish

1) Slice bun in half and broil until the inside is toasted.
2) Schmear ricotta on one side of the bread, then add sauce to the other side. Use a knife to shave meat off the meatball spit and add to the sandwich. Top with more sauce, then broil with cheese on top until melted.
3) Eat.
