Italian Sausage, Peppers & Onions

I made these sandwiches a few weeks ago but I never posted them. I take the photos and write down the recipe as I am cooking, we enjoy eating the dish but I just don’t get around to blogging about them. It’s amazing how many photos that I deleted today because I have missed place the papers that I wrote the recipes on. Yes I guess I could just make up a recipe to go with the photos but to me that just wouldn’t be right. So that just means I will have to try making the dish again. I know that this will make my husband Richard happy because he always enjoys eating what I make.
This recipe came about because I had a lot of Italian sausage in my freezer. You know what that is like if you shop at Costco. And I have used Italian sausage in a few of my dishes like Italian Sausage Soup and Baked Spaghetti with Italian Sausage. And I have often used Italian sausage instead of ground beef in my pasta sauce.  But today I wanted to make something different.
So I thought why, don’t  I make a very popular Italian dish that uses sausage I looked up how a few other cooks prepared the dish and read a few recipes that I found in my cookbooks and that is how I came up with this recipe that more suites my taste and is very simple to prepare. It turned out great and I will definitely be making this dish again, not just because I still have a lot of Italian sausage in my freezer. But because these sandwich tasted so good!
