As the days grow cooler (at least here in Indiana where I am), I tend to gravitate toward quick soup recipes and grilled cheese when it comes to mealtime. In our rotation with soup and easy crockpot chicken and noodles, we also like to make this recipe for Sausage Stromboli. It's hearty and delicious, and perfect any night of the week!
1 loaf of French bread (we get a loaf from the bakery)
1/3 cup of pizza sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste, more or less to taste
1 lb log Italian sausage
½ teaspoon basil, dried
½ teaspoon oregano, dried
¼ cup canned, sliced mushrooms
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix 1/3 cup of pizza sauce and 1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste (we like a lot of sauce so we use 2 tablespoons).
In a medium skillet, cook and crumble sausage with basil and oregano.
On a sheet of aluminum foil, place a loaf of French bread, cut in half. Spread the top and bottom of loaf with pizza sauce and tomato paste mixture. Next, layer sausage, then mushrooms and top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
Place sandwich, open faced, into the oven. Bake the sandwich for about 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread has browned. Remove from oven and close sandwich. Wrap in foil and bake for 2-3 more minutes.
Cut sandwich and serve with potato chips.
