1.25 lb. Sweet Italian TURKEY Sausage, casing removed
1/2 lb. Chorizo
2c Rinaldi’s Spaghetti Sauce (We did Original- But, any works)
1 can Basil and Oregano Tomatoes, DRAIN WELL (Press lid some)
2T Tomato Paste
1.5T TO 2T White Wine (I did 1.5T Movendo Moscato)
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
1 filled cup Red Onion, sliced
3/4tsp Dried Italian Seasoning
1T Grated Parmesan Cheese (Store shelf kind)
Topping Shredd. Cheese Choice: Provolone, Moz., Or Italian (At end)
Other toppings *Optional: Olives, Spinach/Kale/Lettuce, Tomatoes, even Mayo!, etc.
Two Ideas of cooking:
1.) Cook meat (I start with Turkey, then add in Chorizo.). Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Crock. Add all, EXCEPT, peppers and topping cheese. Cook on Low total about 4-5 hours. About 1/2way TO hour before serving, add in peppers. At end, top with cheese, once melted serve on toasted bread of choice. Garlic Bread works.
Or Over noodles (Mock noodles work, like Zucchini noodles).
2.) Cook meats in large skillet, adding in seasons. Add in rest. (Optional: Saute vegis separate on side, with minced garlic. Add as topping.). Top meat with cheese. Cover, simmer til melted. Serve all on buns. Or over noodles.
FOR BREAD: Preheat oven to about 450. Cut bread to sizes desired, then mostly half. Quick spray of Butter Flavor Cooking Spray (Brush of butter works, too). Sprinkle with Cheese & Garlic Topper Season (Fleet Farm Brand) and Garlic Powder. Bake about 8 minutes, then broil for about 20seconds.
NOTES: We amped our typical Meat, Pepper, and Sauce recipe to get this. Chorizo gives it some heat. White Wine gives it an oomph. Turkey Meat cuts some cals. Feel free to skip or tweek to your taste. Like using Beef, Italian Sausage-Not turkey, etc. Or skipping Chorizo, up Italian Turkey- I’d add Red Pepper Flakes then! Basil and Oregano instead of Italian season, or seasons of choice. Up Sauce to taste. Etc. Like I said, To Your Taste! Endless Options.
Healthier Options: Serve on Lettuce Wraps, over Rice Noodles/Zucchini Noodles, etc.
