Italian Sub Sandwiches Recipe

I serve these sandwiches for a special party treat. The red and green peppers add color along with flavor.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds Italian sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium green peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 submarine sandwich buns (about 10 inches), split


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat just until no longer pink; drain. Add the onions, peppers and garlic. Cover and cook for 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and oregano. Cover and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until tomatoes are cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 2. Meanwhile, hollow out bottom of each roll, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. (Discard removed bread or save for another use.) Toast rolls. Fill with sausage mixture.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Yield: 8 servings.
