Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 container (15 ounces) BUITONI Refrigerated Marinara Sauce (15 oz.), divided
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil or oregano, crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 medium green, yellow and/or red bell peppers, cut into rings and halved
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

PREHEAT grill.

BEAT egg and 1/4 cup marinara sauce in large bowl. Stir in bread crumbs, onion, basil and garlic. Add beef; mix well. Shape beef mixture into eight 1/2-inch-thick patties. Tear off an 18 x 12-inch piece of heavy-duty foil. Place bell pepper pieces in center of foil; drizzle with oil. Bring up opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold; fold in remaining edges to enclose bell peppers, leaving space for steam to build.
