In honor of the Food Network show by the same name, today’s blog is about the best thing I’ve ever eaten. It was totally by accident… I had stopped by a little Italian store called A Taste of Italy, (8421 University Boulevard, Clive, IA 50325-1036). The smell was divine so of course, being a devoted foodie, I asked what it was. It turned out to be the italian sausage cooking for sandwiches. I asked, “Fix me up with one!” The wait was a little long, but WELL worth it!
I took the sandwich out to my car, unwrapped it and bit into heaven! It was undoubtedly one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever eaten in my life. Two thin round slices of medium heat italian sausage, marinara, grilled red peppers and onions and provolone cheese on a round italian bread bun. Somehow they toasted the entire sandwich in an oven (maybe toaster oven?) so the bread had a lovely crispness to it… OH MY GOD! I had to call my mom, who also loves any food Italian, and rave about it to her! She laughed and said, “I’ve never heard you get so excited about a sandwich before!”
If you’re ever in Des Moines (Clive is a suburb of Des Moines) don’t miss A Taste of Italy!
