Very good recipe! I used hot italian turkey sausage and added some onion and garlic. I cooked the sausage, peppers, onion and garlic together to skip a step and it came out wonderfully. I served the sausage mixture on crusty italian hoagie rolls and topped with shredded italian four cheese. Yum! Thanks for a great and easy recipe.

Oh, yummy! Great sandwich for a late Saturday lunch. Wow were they filling, lol. I cooked up some mushrooms and onions with the peppers and mixed that with the sausage. I used mozzarella, lots and lots of mozzarella, lol!

This was good and easy to make. I used a pound and a half of sweet sausage. I then used a 14 ounce bag of frozen red and green peppers with onions. I cooked this all up and the added the sauce. I then put the mixture in the crockpot. I used mozzarella cheese. We all enjoyed these.

Got rave reviews from all members of the family. I made a mistake and added the 1/2 cup of cheese at the same time as the pasta sauce. Seemed to work ok, just made the stirring a bit sticky. I used hot italian sausage and french rolls. Thanks so much for sharing.

Easy, peazy, lemon squeezy! I used a ciabatta roll, as I had it on hand, and I skipped the peppers out of personal preference. That said, this was yummy and so easy; I did use hot italian sausage, for a little bit of heat. Thanks so much for sharing a fab recipe, Lori Mama!

This was a really good recipe. It didn't take long to prepare and everyone liked it. Instead of panini bread, I used garlic bread that I baked before adding the sausage mixture. I also misread the ingredients and added shredded cheddar during the first cheese addition. I then read the ingredients and topped the sandwiches with provolone before I broiled them. Thanks for the great recipe! I will definitely make this again.

My husband loves my homemade turkey sausage (Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties) & even tho it's a "breakfast" recipe, I love to try to use it in other ways. I used 4oz lean ground turkey (for 1 sandwich), didn't use any peppers & loved the idea of mixing some cheese into the meat itself. I didn't broil the sandwich (used whole wheat hoagie buns) but just let the cheese melt right on the meat. The longer the meat can simmer with the sauce, I think the better it tastes--so I simmered for about 10 minutes. He enjoyed the different, spicy flavor & it was so easy!! I hope to make this again for him for a quick supper! thank u for sharing!

Brilliant flavour and pretty quick too! I saved time by cooking the peppers with the sausage. Thanks for a lovely lunch!

Loved this, but can't have too often because it is not too healthy! It tasted great, maybe as an appetizer instead of a meal! Thank you!

I make a similar recipe using hamburg. Using JimmyDean sausage was a nice switch-up. I chose to omit the greenpeppers and also used hamburg buns. Broiled with the mozza on top and they made a nice easy supper. :-)
