Sausage ‘n’ Peppers Subs

This meal always reminds me of Tony Soprano because he happened to eat that ONE sausage ‘n’ peppers sub on that ONE episode.

Anyway, this is an easy dish, with a great aroma, flavor and textures. I throw a few Italian sausages and veggies into a sub and top it with marinara and cheese. What’s easier?

I buy Italian sausages in a pack of five for about $4. For this dish, I used three. That plus an onion, bell pepper, tomato sauce and the bread put me back a solid $6. Not bad. Plus I had leftover sausage and cheese for ziti a few days afterward. Always try to stretch out your groceries. You’ll end up eating more and saving more.

Ingredients for 2 (and leftovers for lunch):

  • 2-3 Italian sausages
  • 1 onion, half cut into strips, the other half diced
  • 1 bell pepper (I used green), cut into strips
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can of tomato sauce (14 ounces)
  • 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 2 Submarine sandwich breads
  • ¼ to ½ cup mozzarella cheese

Cook the sausages according to your liking. I steam mine.  Allow to cool and slice into long pieces.

In a small saucepan, heat a teaspoon of oil on medium and add the garlic, diced onions, and pepper flakes.  Cook until fragrant and add the tomato sauce. Add 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then a simmer.

Also while that is cooking, heat the other teaspoon of oil in a large pan. Add the onion strips and season with ½ teaspoon of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few minutes, then add the bell pepper strips. I like the bell peppers to still be crunchy. Cook another minute or two, and then add the Italian sausage. Mix well and serve in warm submarine bread, topped with marinara sauce and cheese.
