Lasagna in a bun

So, here's the recipe Scott Miller and I were discussing this morning.  No noodles at all in mine but still all the deliciousness of lasagna!  Garfield approves.

8 sub/hoagie buns, uncut
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup (4 oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided

Make a 2-inch wide V-shaped cut in the center of each bun within 1-inch of the bottom.  Remove cut portion and save for another use; set aside.

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.  Add the spaghetti sauce, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.  Cook 4-5 minutes or until heatd through.

Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, Parmesan cheese and half of the cheddar and mozzrella cheese.  Spoon meat sauce into buns; top with cheese mixture.  Place on a baking sheet.  Cover loosely with foil.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheddar and mozzarella.  Return to the overn for 2-3 minutes or until the cheeses are melted.
