Delicious Italian twist on nachos! These hot appetizers made using Italian sausage are ready in just 35 minutes!
slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread (from 12-oz loaf, 2 to 2 1/2 inches in diameter)
Olive oil cooking spray
lb bulk hot Italian sausage
cup Alfredo pasta sauce
teaspoon Italian seasoning
large tomato, seeded, chopped (1 cup)
can (2 1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 oz)
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired
Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with foil. On cookie sheet, arrange bread slices with sides touching. Spray tops of bread slices lightly with cooking spray. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown.
Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally and breaking into small pieces, until no longer pink; drain. Stir in Alfredo sauce and Italian seasoning.
Spoon sausage mixture evenly over bread slices. Sprinkle evenly with tomato, olives and cheese. Bake about 6 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve hot.
Instant flavor is just a spray away. Look for olive oil cooking spray for added flavor! Crunched for time? Instead of toasting the baguette slices, try pita bread chips or bagel chips and continue as directed in Step 2 after heating your oven.
