Italian Sausage Sandwiches with Peppers and Onions
What You Need
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 large green or red bell peppers, or a mixture of both, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
2 large onions, sliced
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon or more of dried oregano, basil or combination of both
Salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds Italian link sausage, mild or hot
8 hoagie or steak sandwich rolls
Heat olive oil in large sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until slightly wilted. Add garlic and cook one more minute. Add peppers and seasonings; stir to combine. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers are very tender, about 20 minutes. Remove the lid to evaporate liquids.
Place sausage on hot grill and cook until browned on all sides and thoroughly done. If necessary, place cooked sausages in pan with peppers to keep warm. To serve, place a sausage in roll and top with peppers and onions as desired.
Makes 8 Sandwiches
Notes: Leftover peppers and onions make a delicious sandwich without the sausage. Just add some cheese.
Variation: Add a little tomato or tomato sauce to the peppers and onions.
