Peppers and onions add a fresh taste to this zippy sausage filling for sandwiches. "My mother gave me this recipe," recalls Suzette Gessel of Albuquerque, New Mexico. "It's simple to assemble, and it's gobbled up quickly."

"This came out really greasy. That was pretty unappealing."

"I made this for dinner and it got rave reviews (even from the kids who hate peppers and onions). I used a mixture of hot and mild turkey sausages and used 2 green peppers (I didn't have a red one) and instead of tomato sauce, used some leftover canned spaghetti sauce. Turned out great, was super easy and warmed us on a chilly day. Looking forward to making this again."

"We added a bit of soy sauce and crushed red peppers...It was spicy and great! Served it on some toasted hoagie rolls. Loved it so much that I we are planning on putting it on our Super Bowl Menu!"

"When doubling this use a 28 oz can of tomato puree and 1 cup of water instead of an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. Made a difference."

"What a great sandwich! I have doubled the recipe and served it the 2nd time around with noodles. Makes a great sauce. I use the Johnsonville Sweet Ital. Sausage."
