Tender pork, red and green peppers and melted mozzarella cheese come together in this yummy sandwich sent in by Jane Ulness of Edmonds, Washington. TIP: “To make it more substantial, sometimes I process the hallowed-out bread pieces and add the crumbs and some Italian seasoning to the meat and vegetables,” Jane says.
