Italian Sausage Sandwiches with Peppers and Onions

 

Ingredients

  • 1 package Italian-style sausages

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips

  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (add more if you want; it just depends on how saucy you like your peppers)

  • Hoagie rolls, split (and toasted, if desired)

Directions

1. Bring water to a simmer in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausages. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover and cook until casings are crispy and sausages are completely cooked through, about 10 to 15 more minutes.

2. Meanwhile, melt remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peppers, onion, and garlic and saute until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning. Add tomato sauce and heat through.

3. Serve sausages on hoagie rolls, topped with pepper and onion mixture.
