3/4 lb. hamburger
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
1 (14 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
1 (11 oz.) can refrigerated french bread loaf
4 slices mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese

Cook hamburger, onion and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat; drain well.

Stir in 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce and the Italian seasoning.

Preheat oven to 400.

Unroll French bread loaf onto a lightly floured surface; roll or press with fingers into a 16 inch square. Cut into 4 squares; transfer dough squares to a lightly greased baking sheet.

Spoon hamburger mixture evenly into center of each square. Top with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Fold over to form a triangle, pressing edges to seal.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Pour a small amount of spaghetti sauce over each triangle, sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake an additional 5 minutes or until brown. Serve.
