1 (19 1/2-oz.) pkg. Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1 (8 oz.) pkg. fresh mushrooms, quartered
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 (15 1/2-oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 T. tomato paste
1 tsp. dried onion flakes
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 (12-oz.) French bread loaf
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. (1 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring often, 10 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 5 minutes. Stir in next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes. Preheat over to 400. Cut bread in half lengthwise. Place bread, cut side up, on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 5 to 6 minutes until toasted. Spoon sausage mixture onto toasted bread, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 400 for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
