A quick snip of the kitchen shears is all it takes to make a pretty design on top of this meat-filled roll made with refrigerated crescent roll dough.

Ingredients

1
lb. lean ground beef
1
cup garlic-flavored tomato pasta sauce
2
(8-oz.) cans Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls
4
oz. (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 2 cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Brown ground beef in large skillet over medium-high for 5 to 7 minutes or until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain. Stir in pasta sauce. Remove skillet from heat.
  • 2 Separate dough from both cans into 8 rectangles. Place rectangles on sprayed cookie sheets. Firmly press perforations to seal forming 8 (6x4-inch) rectangles.
  • 3 Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture in 1 1/2-inch lengthwise strip down center of each dough rectangle. Top each with 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese. With scissors or sharp knife, make cuts 1 inch apart on each side of beef mixture. Alternately cross strips over filling.
  • 4 Bake at 375°F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown, switching cookie sheets halfway through baking time.
