In southeastern Wisconsin, our cuisine is influenced by both Germans and Italians who immigrated to this area. When preparing this recipe, we usually substitute German bratwurst for the Italian sausage, so we blend the two influences with delicious results. —Craig Wachs, Racine, Wisconsin

"WOW! YUM! I add a little sugar and 1/4 c red wine. My favorite spaghetti sauce to use with this recipe is Muir Glen, found in the organic section. Since finding this recipe, I've made it many times and it turns out delicious!"

"I did not care for this very much. I think I prefer Italian sausage that are grillled instead."

"Highly recommend giving this a try. I used teaspoons instead of tablespoons for the spices and added a sliced onion. Outstanding sandwich!"

"I like to substitute brats or hot dogs in this dish. Also, I use 2 tsps each of dried oregano and dried basil, NOT 2 Tbsp each. My finished dish is extremely flavorful - I would NOT want more than 2 tsps each of the dried herb amounts! -Lori in WI."

"This is a great recipe. You can use the leftovers to make pasta with sausage and peppers. Just slice leftover sausage and serve over pasta with leftover sauce and peppers. Two meals for the work of one!"
