1 9x13-inch casserole


  • 1 pound ground beef

  • ½ pound bulk hot Italian sausage

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

  • teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste

  • 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Cook and stir ground beef, sausage, onion, and bell pepper in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is completely browned and crumbled, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain grease from the skillet and return to the heat.

  3. Stir flour, salt, oregano, and pepper into the skillet. Pour in spaghetti sauce and add mixed vegetables. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish.

  4. Roll crescent dough into a flat layer. Place dough over beef mixture and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over top.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until dough is golden and cheese is melted, about 30 minutes.
