"We live in South Jersey, close by to Hammonton, which has a great Italian grocery store. They make numerous types of homemade sausage and one of my favorites is a chicken sausage with feta, garlic and spinach. Delicious! However, this recipe is all about the sandwich, you can use any type of non-breakfast type sausage. My one daughter likes hot Italian sausage and the other one loves mild. This recipe works for all three kinds plus others. Also my DH likes spaghetti sauce on his sandwich and I like mine without."

I used sweet Italian sausage to prepare these. I also used sub rolls. My husband bit into his and said I better hurry up and take a bite of mine before he stole it! I grabbed mine and took a bite and it was delicious! Even my lil man loved it cut into pieces and dipped in ketchup. He even ate the veggies since I let him help me cook them.

I loved the sauce with the onions and peppers with the sausage. It made a great tasting sub!

One of my favorite subs is sausage, peppers and onions, and I have it quite often. However, my husband wanted to try this one when I told him about it having sauce and cheese. He is Italian, so he loves anything with sauce. When I gave him his sandwich, he took a bite and told me how much he loved it, with a mouth full of meat, but I couldn't understand him, so he had to say it again! haha

I doubled this for the big crowd I had over for my first barbecue of the year for Memorial Day. They were great and they went over very well with all who had them! Update: This time I sprinkled garlic powder in with the onions when cooking them for more flavor and it was awesome!
