  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 32 ounce jar of pasta sauce The amount can vary slightly, but you want about 4 cups sauce
  • sliced Italian or french bread or buns Use gluten free bread or buns if gf
  • shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Cook ground beef and ground sausage, in a large skillet or pan, over medium heat until browned and no longer pink. 

  2. Drain off any fat. 

  3. Add pasta sauce to meat and stir to combine. Cook over medium low heat until mixture is hot. 

  4. While sauce is heating, toast bread. I like to place the sliced bread on a cookie sheet and toast it under the broiler, but you have to watch it carefully. You can also use a toaster to toast the bread.

  5. Serve sauce over toasted bread or buns. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
