- Preheat oven to 325°F.

Continue to cook the peppers and onions until soft; about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté until the moisture has completely evaporated; about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and continue to cook for another minute.
- Add in the Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano® Italian Chopped Tomatoes in Puree, Carmelina Brands® Italian Lentils, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, Calabrian chili, paprika, and cumin. Stir to combine. Lower heat to medium-low. Simmer and reduce the sauce for 15 minutes until thickened. Stir in parsley and season to taste. Remove from heat.
- Place bottom halves of brioche buns onto a sheet pan. Scoop a heaping spoonful of the Vegetarian Sloppy Joe mixture onto each bun half, add a slice of cheese, and top each sandwich with the other half of the bun. Repeat until all sandwiches have been prepared.
- Bake Vegetarian Sloppy Joes Sliders in the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese has melted. Serve immediately. Mangia bene!
