  • 1 pound ground beef or substitute Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 8 ounces small mushrooms sliced thin
  • 1 medium green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup condensed tomato soup
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 12 ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Vienna bread
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a large skillet, crumble the beef and brown along with the onion. Drain any excess fat.
  • Add the mushrooms and bell pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes or until they are just starting to get soft.
  • Add the tomato sauce, tomato soup, garlic powder, dried oregano, chili powder, tomato paste and black pepper. Stir and reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for at least 10 minutes, the longer the more the flavors will meld. If the sauce gets too thick add a bit of water.
  • Cut bread in half lengthwise and scoop out as much of the bread as you can.
  • Transfer bread to a sheet of aluminum foil.
  • Fill insides with the meat mixture.
  • Top with cheese and cover in foil.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve with lots of napkins.
