Italian Grilled Vegetable Sub with Barely Bolognese Sauce

Italian Grilled Vegetable Sub with Barely Bolognese Sauce


  • 1 Jar Barely Bolognese Sauce
  • 2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 large red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise, seeded
  • 1 large firm tomato, cut horizontally into 4 slices
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil plus 8 large whole basil leaves
  • 2 Italian sandwich rolls with seeds, split lengthwise
  • 4 thin slices Fontina cheese



  1. We love the grill in the cold weather – so fire up that grill!
  2. Arrange zucchini, bell pepper and tomato on rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Brush cut side of each roll with 1/2 tablespoon of e.v. Olive Oil.
  4. Grill cut side of rolls until toasted.
  5. Place rolls, cut side up, on plates.
  6. Broil or grill vegetables until tender and lightly charred, turning once and brush lightly with e.v. olive oil.
  7. While vegetables are grilling, follow instructions on the Barely Bolognese jar for heating. (Add ground beef to make homemade meat sauce for the sloppy version – and pour on the love!!)
  8. Arrange warm vegetables on roll bottoms. Cover each with 2 slices cheese, 4 and whole basil leaves.
  9. Spoon the Barely Bolognese sauce over the sandwiches and put their tops on.
  10. Buon appetito!!
