Peppo’s “Peppo-roni” Italian sub (prices vary by size) features peppered pastrami brisket, zesty pepperoni and provolone cheese. It is shown here toasted and topped with the garlic “guts,” which are marinated overnight to let the flavor of the garlic set in. Photos by Amanda Stoll/22nd Century Media
