Crescent rolls with a savory Italian filling with mozzarella cheese. Ready in 30 minutes.
  • 1 1/4 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tube crescent rolls

  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a pie pan with cooking spray. Saute the ground beef in a frying pan. When browned stir in the spaghetti sauce. Cook for a couple of minutes and remove from heat.
  2. While the ground beef is browning open the crescent rolls. Unroll them and fill the pie pan in a spoke pattern laying the thickest end on the bottom of the pie pan. Leave a 3 inch overhang on the sides to cover the top with.
  3. Spread 1 1/4 cups of the mozzarella cheese on top of the crescent rolls. Top with the ground beef mixture. Fold over the crescent rolls and pinch the ends together in the center. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the crescent rolls, sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
