A Truly Kick-Ass Hero

By: Toren Weiner

If there’s any take-away from Kick-Ass 2, it’s never to underestimate things that come in small packages. In honor of the movie and its pint-sized superheroes, Cooking Channel brings you the Kickin’ Meatball Parmigiana with Diavolo Sauce. The meatballs on this hero may seem unassuming, but inside they are bursting with flavor. From the beef/pork blend in the ball itself, to the secret weapon hidden in the center, smoked mozzarella cheese, this sandwich is sure to save the day (or night) at your next family meal! Don’t forget the red pepper-infused spicy diavolo sauce for a kick even Hit-Girl would envy.
