Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.

These subs are a good year-round—for lunch, dinner or a late-night supper. When it's construction season, Brian may work until sundown. This meal's one that I can serve early to our kids and again later when he gets home.—Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon

  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
