1 small yellow onion, julienned

1 red bell pepper, julienned

1 green bell pepper, julienned

1 tablespoon butter

4 links raw spicy Italian sausage, skin sliced lengthwise and sausage removed from casings in 1 piece

6 slices provolone cheese, preferably smoked

Two 8-inch hoagie rolls

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup marinara sauce, warmed


  1. In a large skillet or flat griddle over medium-high heat, saute the onions and peppers in butter for several minutes until softened.
  2. Place the sausages on the griddle or in the skillet next to the peppers and onions. Flatten slightly to the length of your hoagie roll.
  3. Cook the sausages for approximately 4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.
  4. Place half of the peppers and onions on top of 2 sausage links placed side by side and top with 3 slices of provolone cheese. Repeat for second sandwich. Wait for the cheese to melt slightly. Pick up the sausage and peppers from underneath with a metal spatula and place in the hoagie rolls. Season with salt and pepper and serve with a side of marinara sauce. Enjoy!
