I’m loving this Italian-inspired burger with arrabbiata pesto, and I gotta say…the smoked provolone really drives it home.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Form Patties

    Quarter potatoes.

    Mince rosemary.

    In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, pesto (use less if spice-averse), and half the Italian seasoning (reserve remaining for sauce). Form into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Press thumb into center of each patty to form slight indentation.

  2. 2

    Roast the Potatoes

    Place potatoes, rosemary, 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper on prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until golden-brown and fragrant, 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    While potatoes roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Toast Rolls and Heat Sauce

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat.

    Add rolls, cut side-down, to hot, dry pan and cook until lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer rolls to a plate.

    Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    While rolls toast, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine marinara and remaining Italian seasoning. Microwave, 30 seconds.

    Carefully remove from microwave.

  4. 4

    Cook the Burgers

    Return pan used to toast rolls to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    For the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, top each patty with 1 Tbsp. marinara sauce (reserve remaining for buns and dipping) and cheese. Cover with lid and cook until cheese has melted.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping each bottom bun with 1 Tbsp. reserved marinara sauce (reserve remaining for dipping), patty, and top bun. Serve remaining 1/4 cup sauce on the side for dipping. Buon appetito!
