Lasagna Sandwich
Yield: 6-8 servings
Cook Time: 35-40 minutes
Tips: If preferred, you can make this with sandwich with all ground beef (1 lb.) and omit the sausage, though the sausage adds delicious flavor!
Suggestion: Delicious served with a salad and/or potato chips.
  • Meat Filling
  • 3/4 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/4 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped flat fresh parsley

  • Cheese Filling
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6-8 sturdy long oval-shaped sandwich rolls
Preheat oven to 400° F.

In a medium skillet, cook ground beef and sausage until brown. Drain off any fat. Add tomato sauce and all other Meat Filling ingredients. Stir to combine. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 minutes more, stirring frequently.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine egg and cheeses and stir until blended.

Cut a thin slice off tops of each roll (about 1/2-inch thick on the sides). Hollow out centers of bottom parts of rolls, leaving 1/2-inch-thick shells. Spoon meat mixture into hollowed buns (about 1/2-inch depth). Spoon cheese mixture over meat mixture (about 1/4-inch depth). Spoon another thin layer of meat mixture over top to cover cheese mixture. Sprinkle about 1-2 tablespoons grated mozzarella cheese over top of second meat layer. Place roll tops back on top of rolls.

Wrap each sandwich individually in aluminum foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
