Italian Sloppy Joes

SUPER EASY-TO-FIX ALERT! If you can saute a few veggies, open a can and fix some garlic toast, you're golden with this one! Seriously, anytime we have left over hamburger buns, traditional sloppy Joes are probably going to be on the menu. With a few substitutions, the Italian version blows that one out of the water. This dish is almost good enough to like more than lasagna. We paired it with a big healthy salad of Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, black olives and cucumbers. Since it's just Andy and myself, we had it again a few nights later. This recipe will feed four people or more depending on how you divide out the garlic toast.

1 lb. bulk pack of Italian sausage (we do homemade)
1 large pepper (color of your choice)
1 onion
1 can of spaghetti sauce (we use Delmonte Traditional Pasta Sauce, 24 oz.)
1 box of garlic toast (8 slices/box, baked per directions)
Parmesan cheese to top*
*I'm thinking melt some Mozzarella on top the next go around!
 Saute the chopped peppers and onions and Italian sausage. Drain off the fat.
Stir in pasta sauce and heat through.

Arrange one to two slices of garlic toast on the plate. Pour meat sauce on bread. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve.
