Baguette Stuffed with Bolognese Sauce

Course Main Dishes
Prep. Time 10 - 15 mins
Cooking Time 38 - 40 mins
Yields 4 servings

1 large baguette bread
2 cups (224 g) grated Canadian Mozzarella cheese
Grated Canadian Parmesan cheese

Bolognese Sauce:
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
1 1/3 lb (650 g) lean ground beef
19 oz (540 ml) 1 can tomato sauce
1 tbsp (15 ml) Italian seasonings
1 tbsp (15 ml) steak spices
1/4 tsp (1 ml) crushed hot pepper
Freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

Cut baguette in half, lengthwise and cut each piece of bread in half. Remove crumb and fill with very hot Bolognese Sauce. Sprinkle with Canadian Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes and grill under oven broiler for 1 to 2 minutes until cheese is golden brown. Remove from oven and serve one piece of grilled baguette per person with Caesar salad.

Bolognese Sauce:
In saucepan, sauté garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add ground beef and brown for 5 to 7 minutes while stirring. Drain off fat. Add remaining ingredients. Season to taste with pepper. Mix well and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Adjust seasonings, if necessary.
