I don't remember where I got this recipe. It's been around for years. These sandwiches are great on a busy weeknight because they're easy to prepare yet very tasty


  • 2 uncooked Italian sausage links
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste, optional
  • 2 French or submarine rolls, split and toasted


  1. In a small skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until browned. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut into 1/2-in. slices. Return to pan and cook until no longer pink; drain and set aside.
  2. In same skillet, saute the onion, green pepper, red pepper and garlic in oil until crisp-tender. Add the sausage, tomato, oregano and salt and pepper if desired. Cook until tomatoes are heated through. Spoon sausage mixture into rolls.
