Super Simple "Sorta" Stromboli

Like Italian food?

Need something quick to eat?

Here's a wonderful quick lunch or a light dinner! 

Now, it's not a real's "Stromboli-esque".  This braided, meat filled roll, is quite tasty.  It's a semi-homemade version that's easy to assemble and pleases families of all ages!

So the other day MGG brought me tulips, for no reason at all!!  Don't you just love when that happens?

So I decided to treat him with this dish.  He clearly loved it since he ate two of them (and a hearty salad)! Here's how to make them.

In a skillet throw in a tablespoon of butter and your mushrooms.  Cook until brown and tender, about 5 min.

Push the mushrooms to the side of the skillet and add the ground beef. 

Stir and crumble meat until it's browned, adding mushrooms back in.

Add in the pasta sauce, (I used a garlic sauce, but any flavor will do) the italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt & pepper.

Unroll the dough into 4 pieces or rectangels, and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. 

Spread the meat mixture evenly down the middle leaving a 1 inch border on all sides.

Using a knife, cut 1 inch strips along the sides.

Cross the dough over the meat mixture overlapping , and alternating each side to make the braid. (kinda looks like a mummy right?)

Bake at 375 for 12 min or until golden brown.  Woohoo! look how yummy these look! 

Can't wait to bite into these babies!!!

Super Simple "Sorta" Stromboli

Yield: 4

1/4 c. mushrooms, sliced
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
3/4 c. pre-made pasta sauce - any flavor
1 t. italian seasoning
1/2 t garlic powder
salt & pepper
1 8oz. can of refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown mushrooms, about 5 min.  Push to the side of the skillet.  Add ground beef to the skillet, breaking up in to small pieces. Brown beef about 6-7 min.  Add pasta sauce, italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt & pepper to taste.

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Remove dough from can and separate in to 4 rectangles.  Press perforations together to seal the seams forming the 4 rectangles.  They are about 4x6 inches.

Evenly distribute the meat mixture down the middle of the dough leaving about a 1 inch border on all sides. Top evenly with mozzarella cheese.  With a knife make 1 inch cuts down each side of the rectangle.  Cross dough over the meat mixture alternating sides to form the braid.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve immediately.
