Italian Crescent Casserole

This recipe was amazingly good! It was another meal that was quick and easy to make and we ate it all up!

1lb ground beef, cooked and drained
1 cup garlic tomato pasta sauce
1can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1½ cups shredded Italian cheese blend
¼ teaspoon dried basil leaves

In skillet, mix cooked beef and pasta sauce. Heat over medium heat until warm.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles. Place dough in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate (I used a small bowl) with the thick side in the middle.  Press dough seams together to make a crust. Sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over dough.  Spoon meat mixture evenly over cheese.  Fold tips of dough over filling to meet in center; do not overlap. Sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese and the basil. Bake at 375°F 15 to 20 minutes.
