Oh, the joy that comes from a meal my children love to eat.
Lasagna in a Bun
thanks to Taste of Home
8 sub or hoagie buns (8 inches)
1 pound ground beef
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 T garlic powder
1 T Italian seasoning
1 c ricotta cheese
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup (4 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 350. Cut a 'V' out of the center of your rolls. Depending on the kind of rolls you get, you can either hollow it out a little or press down the inside of the roll. Save the pieces for something else. Or not.
In a large skillet, cook the beef and drain. Add the spaghetti sauce, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Cook 4-5 minutes or until heated through.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the ricotta, parmesan and a half cup each of the cheddar and mozzarella.
To assemble, spoon the meat mixture into the buns. I pressed mine in with the back of a spoon to create a well for the cheese. Spoon the ricotta mixture onto the meat. Place rolls on a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheddar and mozzarella. Return to the oven for 2-3 minutes.
These are SO good! My children loved them. My husband loved them. I loved them. Totally a keeper. Let me know what you think!!!
