My family has made this recipe for years. My kids ask for this and will definately be at home when I make this for dinner, I even get calls from grown kids out of state requesting this recipe.(Even my kids friends ask for this) It's easy and filling, to me the ultimate comfort food. Can be easily adapted for party fare or family snacks. Can be frozen for up to a month. I make 2x batches and it never makes it to the freezer.

  2. Add tomato paste, onion, mushrooms and (olives if using) add water and stir , simmer til thicened.
  3. salt and pepper to taste if you did not use italian seasoned paste you can add italian spices also to taste.
  4. Slice loaves in half like a hot dog bun all the way through and place on cookie sheet. or 2 sheet pans.
  5. Spoon beef mix onto bread. Both loave you should have 4 pieces to cover with mixture. (or more if using smaller loaves) can sub itallian rolls if making for snacks or appitisers.
  6. smother with cheese and add strips of bell pepper.
  7. bake at 350 degrees til cheese melts and just starts to brown You won't have to tell them twice that dinner is ready. Enjoy!
  8. If you are freezing this do all steps but baking, cut loaves in half then split for ease in wrapping and storage. wrap with foil and plastic and freeze. to bake remove wrap place on cookie sheet and bake til hot throughout. Can be microwaved but I prefer Oven for crispy bread and cheese browing a little.
