Here's a new twist on a Classic Sloppy Joe-- one made with a thick spaghetti sauce and served over thick slices of garlic French bread. It's super simple to make, and my family loved it. Recipe is very slightly adapted from "The Pioneer Woman"

Directions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add a tablespoon of olive oil and the beef. Cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until it is well browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then remove the beef and drain off the fat.
  2. To the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and cook the peppers and onions until soft and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper, then add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add the tomato paste and cook for a minute or two.
  5. Add the tomatoes, sugar, oregano and basil and bring to a simmer.
  6. Return the beef to the pan and simmer until the mixture is nice and thick, about 10 minutes. If it gets too thick, thin it with a little water. Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan and parsley. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  7. Optional: I added a splash of white balsamic vinegar, and that gave a little extra acidity to the sauce.
  8. For the garlic toast:
  9. Garlic Toast:
  10. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet.
  11. In a bowl, mix together the butter, Parmesan, oil, parsley, garlic powder, paprika and oregano until it forms a paste. Season with salt and pepper, then spread the mixture on the bread.
  12. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  13. To serve: Spoon a nice portion of sauce over each of 4 slices of the Garlic Toast. Let the sauce cascade over the sides, then prop a second piece of Garlic Toast over to the side of each. Garnish with extra grated Parmesan and chopped parsley.
