Italian subs are the perfect game day sandwich! Deli meat and provolone cheese are piled high in these thick and flavorful
The best Italian subs I ever ate were found in a dive bar near the University of Cincinnati.
The only employee we ever encountered was an Asian woman. She rarely spoke, but she made mean Italian subs.
My version of spicy Italian subs comes pretty darn close to the ones in my memory!

- Cut sandwich rolls along one seam being careful to not cut all the way through. Spread may on each side of sub roll.
- Top each roll with cheese, ham, turkey, salami and pepperoni. Spread a tablespoon of chili paste on each sub.
