  • 4 Italian sausages
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 hoagie rolls
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil or parsley, chopped, for garnish

Method of Preparation

  1. Cook the Sausages: In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the Italian sausages, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables: In the same skillet, add the remaining olive oil. Add the sliced bell peppers and onion, and cook until they are tender and caramelized, about 8-10 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  3. Combine Sausage and Vegetables: Slice the cooked sausages into 1-inch pieces and return them to the skillet with the sautéed vegetables. Stir to combine and heat through for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Toast the Hoagie Rolls: While the sausage and peppers are heating, lightly toast the hoagie rolls in the oven or on a skillet until they are warm and slightly crispy.
  5. Assemble the Hoagies: If using marinara sauce, spread a spoonful inside each hoagie roll. Fill the rolls with the sausage and pepper mixture. Garnish with fresh basil or parsley if desired.
  6. Serve: Serve the hoagies hot, optionally with extra marinara sauce on the side for dipping.

  • For extra flavor, use a mix of mild and hot Italian sausages.
  • Add a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese before toasting the hoagie rolls for a cheesy twist.
  • Use fresh, high-quality hoagie rolls for the best texture and flavor.
