Italian flavours add a twist to this old favourite you can make ahead, then take away — just heat and serve. Summer coleslaw is terrific on the side.

  • Portion size 6 servings


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 lbs lean ground beef
  • 3/4 lbs sweet Italian sausages
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 pepper chopped
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 1 cup sliced mushroom (1/4 lb/125 g)
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 kaiser rolls


In Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook beef and sausage, stirring to break up, for about 5 minutes or until no longer pink. Using slotted spoon, transfer meat to plate; drain off fat from pot.

In same pot, cook onions and sweet pepper, stirring, for 2 minutes; add zucchini, mushrooms, garlic and oregano; cook for 4 minutes. Return meat to pot along with tomatoes, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Bring to boil; reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. (Can be frozen for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator for 36 hours before continuing.)

To reheat, cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, for 20 minutes. Sandwich between cut rolls.
