  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ pound very thinly sliced or shaved steak

  • 1 (24 ounce) jar RAGÚ® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 4 Italian bread rolls

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • pound provolone or fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, torn


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, mushrooms, green peppers, and pinch of salt. Saute until vegetables begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes; add minced garlic and cook another minute.

  2. Push vegetables to one side of skillet. Add the sliced meat to the open area and saute until no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. In a separate saucepan, heat Ragu® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper over medium heat.

  4. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  5. Slice rolls lengthwise and place, opened, on a baking sheet. Toast for 30 seconds under a broiler on low heat, watching them carefully so they don't burn; remove from oven. Rub toasted sides of rolls with cut side of whole garlic clove; brush lightly with olive oil.

  6. Fold cheese slices into meat and onion/pepper mix and stir until cheese begins to melt; distribute among the toasted roll bottoms. Top with a generous spoonful of Ragu® sauce; save the rest for dipping if desired.

  7. Sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
