Italian Sausage Sandwich

These have become my go-to sandwiches for cooler days. Heck, they're good on warmer days too.

The original idea came from Patio Daddio BBQ.

Makes: 6 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 3 hours
Printable Recipe


  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups spaghetti sauce (I used homemade)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 6 hoagie buns

1. Crumble sausage into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown and remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

2. Add peppers and onion to skillet with sausage drippings. Cook until almost tender. Add in the garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

3. Add the sausage back to the skillet. Add the spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Continue simmering for up to 3 hours or until sauce is nice and thick. Add a little water if it gets too thick.

4. Brown buns under oven broiler. Serve topped with the meat mixture and shredded cheese.
