Pizza Hoagies

Pizza Hoagies
8 servings

1 pound ground beef*
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
1/4 cup chopped ripe olives
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
8 French rolls
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Meanwhile, cooke onion and bell pepper in oil until tender. Combine meat, onion and peppers. Stir in pizza sauce, olives, basil and oregano. Cook for 10 minutes or until heated through. Cut 1/4 in. off the top of each roll; set aside. Carefully hollow out bottom of roll, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese inside each shell. Fill each with about 1/2 cup meat mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, gently pressing down to flatten. Replace bread tops. Individually wrap four sandwiches tightly in foil; freeze for up to 3 months. Place remaining sandwiches on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until heated through. To use frozen: Place foil wrapped sandwiches on baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 60-70 minutes or until heated through.
