The Meatball & Sausage Piadina showcases the traditional Italian flavors of meatballs, spicy sausage, roasted red peppers, provolone and parmesan cheese and marinara sauce, while the Chicken Cheddar Bacon Ranch Piadina is a twist on an existing sub. All of the delicious subs at Blimpie can be made with piadina bread for a limited time. Piadinas will be available in stores February 6, through April 30.
