Meatball? For a vegetarian dish? No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, and no, we haven't snuck any non-vegetarian substances into your meal kit. These “meatballs” are not-so-much with the meat, and so, so much with the umami mushroom goodness, bursting from the bread and into your mouth. Marinara and mozzarella cover the “meatballs” from above and below, melding into the most delicious of Italian flavors.
