Italian Grinder

Grinder is an Italian Sandwich or sub.It usually contains meat,cheese and sauce.I got a vegetarian recipe which I have used here. We can say it is same as a subway sandwich.More about grinders here.

Zucchini:1/4 cup
Broccoli:1/4 cup
Marinara Sauce:1/4 cup
Italian sandwich Rolls: (medium sized): 3 atleast
Oregano: 1 tspn(optional)
Salt & Pepper :as per taste
Red Pepper flakes:1tspn
Mozzarella cheese shredded :1/4 cup


Chop the zucchini and broccoli into bite sized pieces.Heat oil /unsalted butter in a pan.Saute the cubed veggies adding the salt,pepper and oregano or italian seasoning and red pepper flakes till they are cooked.Add the marinara sauce.Mix well and saute till the sauce is heated.Keep aside.

Take a bread roll and put a spoonful of this mix on it.Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and close the roll.Do this for each and every sandwich roll. Fold each sandwich in aluminium foil and bake in pre heated oven at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

The final product is this

and when opened looks like this

Serve as an evening or breakfast snack or quick lunch by adding more vegetables and longer footlong rolls.

This can be prepared early and warmed just before serving.

This easy to make sandwich is my entry to WTSIM:Summer Edition (picnic recipes) hosted by Eva:The PassionateCook along with CookSister! and SpittoonExtra

This also goes to A.W.E.D Italian hosted by DK of CulinaryBazaar as a vegetarian snack
