If you are watching your sodium intake, substitute ground turkey breast for Italian turkey sausage.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring often, 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 5 minutes. Stir in next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 400°. Cut bread in half lengthwise. Place bread, cut side up, on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 5 to 6 minutes until toasted.

Step 3

Spoon sausage mixture onto toasted bread, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 400° for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Jennie-O Sweet Lean Italian Turkey Sausage.

Really easy, a simple hit but seemed like a bigger meal to everyone. I used a bit of bacon and a tomato sauce that contained sausage already so cut the cooking time down. Great hearty weekday meal.
