2 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 medium yellow onion, diced

teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 pounds lean ground beef

pound prosciutto, finely chopped

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

cup ketchup

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

cup grated parmesan cheese

Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

6 bulky rolls, toasted

6 slices provolone cheese

In a large saucepan over medium-high, combine the olive oil, garlic, onion, paprika, basil and oregano. Saute until the onion is tender and seasonings are fragrant, about 5 minutes.

Add the ground beef and prosciutto. Saute until the beef is cooked through and the prosciutto begins to brown, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup and vinegar and bring to a simmer. Stir in the parmesan, then season with salt and pepper.

Set the oven to broil.

Arrange the bottom halves of the rolls on a baking sheet, then spoon some of the sloppy Joe mixture onto each. Top each with a slice of provolone, then broil just until the cheese starts to melt. Top with the other halves of the rolls.

Serves six.
