Italian Nachos - you might have been asking yourself, huh? Oh, let me tell you.
Heaven on a plate. It's kind of a great alternative to chip nachos. A bread lovers
dream. This was so simple to whip up. Serve these for a girls night in.
It's truly a meal in itself - Serve with a nice bottle of chilled wine.
1 loaf Italian bread
1 pound ground turkey or ground beef
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 ( 15 ounce ) can tomato sauce
1 ( 15 ounce ) can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper - to taste
