Sausage & Pepper Hoagies

Feeling the need to use up some gorgeous peppers that I bought. All of a  sudden at the store there were these beautiful red, yellow and green bell peppers and they were so reasonable I just had to purchase them.

One of our favorite dishes to use them in is a sausage and pepper saute, that can be served over rice, pasta, potatoes.....but our fav, fav way is to wrap it in a toasty sourdough roll and melt gooey cheese over the top!!

I mean SERIOUSLY!!!! Wouldn't you want to eat this? It is so darn good, and actually pretty easy.

Come on, you know you want to make this....
  • 1 pkg. of your favorite cooked Sausage, I used an Italian Chicken Sausage that we love. 
  • 2- Multi-colored Bell peppers, cored, and sliced in thin strips
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced across thinly
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1- 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder or one clove pressed
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. In a large skillet, on medium -medium high heat, saute the onions and peppers in the oil for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add in the sausage that you have sliced into 1/4" slices, and the garlic. Mix to combine, saute for another 5-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  3. Add in the tomato sauce and cover and cook another 10 minutes on medium low heat. 
This is what it will look like at this step........

Meanwhile prepare your side, pasta, rice, potatoes or like us toasted buns. I preheat the oven to 400F and split open a sourdough loaf  and spread a small amount of butter on each side and "toast them in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. then pile one side with the sausage and pepper mixture and cover with your favorite cheese ( I used Provolone), pop it back into the oven for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted and starting the bubble. Enjoy!!!
