Pesto and Marinara Meatball Subs

The air fryer makes some of the best meatballs you’ll ever have! They’re delicate, yet hold together, and have a slightly crispy exterior. These already great meatballs are only made better by infusing them with pesto and serving them up as a submarine sandwich.

Ingredients

 8 oz (227 g) ground beef
  cup (82 ml) prepared pesto
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp onion powder
 ½ tsp garlic powder
