One night a week we like to have Sandwich Night with chips and salad and simple cookies for dessert served on paper plates. on Sandwich night we eat dinner while watching videos or something on tv. I thought these sandwiches would be great for Sandwich Night. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (April 2004)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 2 medium onions, sliced
- 3 bell peppers, sliced into strips (using one red, one yellow or orange and one green will be pretty)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 lb kielbasa or 1 lb linguica sausage, cooked and cut in half lengthwise and cut crosswise into 6-inch long pieces
- 1 cup red wine
- 2⁄3 cup kalamata olive, pitted and sliced
- 1 baguette, halved lenthwise and cut crosswise into quarters
- In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over med high heat. Add onions and sauted for five minutes or until onions are soft. Stir in peppers and saute another 5 minutes or until pepper are lightly browned. Sprinkle with sugar and paprika and saute another minute. Transfer mixture to a plate but leave drippings in pan.

- Place baguette quarters on each of 4 plates and fill with sausage mixture, spooning juices over each.

We really liked this!!! I kept the onions and peppers separate from the linguica, as I have some haters. I had lots of onions and peppers left, and it was so good for days!
Excellent sandwiches! We are kielbasa fans, and loved this combo of sauteed veggies and sausage. I served these up on toasted bakery hot dog buns, instead of the baguette for an easy weeknight meal. We will be making these again.
Made this for dinner on a Saturday movie night. Followed the recipe exactly using reduced fat kielbasa and a California Syrah that we enjoyed with them. The kalamata olives was a nice addition, and they were finished off with a sprinkle of parmesan.
