Italian Sloppy Joe

This is a great recipe for a different type of sandwich. We eat a  lot of barbecue and I wanted a sloppy joe. I didn't have enough homemade sauce, so I came up a Italian sloppy joe.  Ingredients: 1 lb or so of ground sirloin 1/4 cup finely chopped celery 1/4 cup finely chopped onion  1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper 2 cloves garlic minced  1 tablespoon chopped celery leaves (optional) 1 can diced tomatoes 1 can tomato sauce 1 tablespoon Italian spice Several slices of garlic bread Begin buy sauteing the celery, onions, and peppers in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook until translucent and tender. Add the tomatoes and sauce.  In a separate brown the ground sirloin. When the beef is fully browned add to the sauce. Add the spice and celery leaves. Simmer for atleast an hour. When sauce is ready, grill garlic bread until toasted. Spoon meat sauce on bread and enjoy.
