Yield: 6 servings.

2 turkey Italian sausages
1/2 pound ground round
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 can (15 ounces) chunky Italian-style tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon aniseed
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 loaf (1 pound) French bread
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Coarsely ground pepper

In a skillet, cook sausages until no longer pink. Remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook beef, onion and green pepper until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato, tomato sauce and seasonings. Cut sausages in half lengthwise and slice; add to meat sauce. Cut a wedge out of the top of the bread, about 2 in. wide and three-fourths of the way through the loaf. Fill loaf with meat sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper. Wrap in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 4000 for 15- 20 minutes or until heated through.
