I love to serve this hearty sandwich of sausage and ground beef in a zesty spaghetti stuffed inside of a loaf of French bread. Topped with melted cheese, it's a real crowd-pleaser every time. -Mary Koehler, Portland, Oregon

"This was pretty good. My husband and 4 year old son ate half of it by themselves. I thought it was a bit salts and will put half the salt next time and add mushrooms too. Really quick and easy meal on a week day."

"I've made this numerous times. Great recipe! It's quick and delisious. The seasonings all meld together so nicely and then when you stuff it into the loaf and bake it, the bread gets a bit crusty. A wonderful meal!!!"
