Sausage with peppers was always on the table when I was growing up. Here's how to do it the easy way: Just grab a sheet pan and the ingredients, then let the oven do the work. —Debbie Glasscock, Conway, Arkansas

  • 1 pound uncooked sweet Italian turkey sausage links, roughly chopped
  • 3 medium sweet red peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 hot dog buns, split
  • 6 slices provolone cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place sausage pieces in a 15x10x1-in. sheet pan, arranging peppers and onion around sausage. Drizzle olive oil over sausage and vegetables; bake, stirring mixture after 15 minutes, until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 30-35 minutes.
  2. During the last 5 minutes of baking, arrange buns cut side up in a second sheet pan; top each bun bottom with a cheese slice. Bake until buns are golden brown and cheese is melted. Spoon sausage and pepper mixture onto bun bottoms. Replace tops.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Leftover pasta sauce in the fridge is a welcome addition for a pizza sandwich.
  • For a family-sized sandwich, swap out the hotdog buns with a large loaf of French bread cut in half lengthwise.
