Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Johnsonville® Mild Ground Italian Sausage
  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste

  • 1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) Italian bread

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the sausage, beef, onion, mushrooms and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the water, tomato paste, Parmesan cheese, salt, oregano, garlic and rosemary. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thickened.

  • 3. Line bottom half with three mozzarella cheese slices; top with sausage mixture and remaining cheese. Replace bread top. Wrap sandwich loaf in foil.
