Bread Bowl Beef Dinner

Serves 2

2 Kaiser rolls
3/4 can of corn
1/2 can diced tomatoes (I LOVE Southern Home!) OR 1 whole tomato, peeled and diced
1/2 lb. crumbled ground beef
1/4 onion, roughly chopped
1/4 cup Italian style grated Parmesan cheese (again, LOVE Southern Home)
extra virgin olive oil, to saute
3 tablespoons Classico tomato and basil spaghetti sauce
1 large leaf of lettuce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onion in olive oil until transparent. Hollow out Kaiser rolls, leaving a thick wall and floor. Tear bread into crouton-sized chunks. Drain corn. Drain most of the liquid from the tomatoes, but leave a little bit. Tear lettuce leaf into inch-wide squares. Mix bread, corn, tomatoes, ground beef, onion, Parmesan, salsa, and lettuce. Spoon into rolls until slightly over-full. The leftovers can be used to stuff peppers with on another night! Place stuffed rolls in a casserole dish and bake for 20-30 min, until ground beef is brown and crust of bread bowls are golden and crunchy. Make sure not to burn the bread!
