Italian Stromboli Subs-My Version

I like sub sandwiches that I make myself; it's cheaper and healthier! I've already shared my version of a Toasted Turkey Sub in a previous post; today I'm going to rattle-on about how I make an Italian Stromboli Sub. You will also get to hear about how I save money on a couple of the's just like having your mom around, isn't it?! You should be so lucky! :0) Now, sit up straight, and don't slouch!

Marcia's Italian Stromboli Sub

-1 package of whole wheat sub buns (I buy the good ones at the store bakery discount shelf or bread thrift store and freeze them until needed; just partially thaw in fridge-enough that you can slice through the middle w/ a bread knife)

-Pizza sauce (I buy the Ragu Pizza Sauce in a gallon can at Sam's Club and freeze it in 3-pizza-size portions)

-Pepperoni slices

-Fat-free ham slices

-thin slices of Provolone (or mozzarella) cheese, halved to fit the bun width

Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees (depending on your oven). Lightly grease a heavy metal cookie sheet. Place sub buns that have been sliced horizontally, cut-side up on the baking sheet. On one side of each sandwich spread a layer of sauce and the slices of cheese; on the other half of the bun, place folded slices of ham and top with pepperoni slices. Put in hot oven to toast the bread and melt the cheese. Take out of oven and place sides of subs together. Serve with baby carrots...instead of potato chips!
