Wow! This was so good and so much better than any frozen I've ever had. I purchased mini french bread loaves and made each slice different. It was like having a pizza buffet without leaving home. One was pepperoni & mushroom, one was hamburger with everything, another hamburger, pepperoni, olives, mushrooms and another was sausage with mushrooms. I did use a thinly sliced shallot that I sauteed in just a touch of olive oil. Excellent idea and what a great way to end the week. Thanks for posting!

  5. Stir in tomato paste, green onion, olives, water, salt, oregano, and black pepper.
  6. Cook over medium heat until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan cheese.
  7. Top bread halves evenly with the meat mixture.
