Sausage Sandwich (Italian Style)

Recipe by Alan Leonetti
READY IN: 45mins




  • Poach raw sausages in 1/2 cup water in a covered skillet, simmering until almost done.
  • This takes about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Sautè onions and peppers with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano 4 minutes on medium-high heat.
  • Add the wine, cover and cook 4 minutes more.
  • Uncover and cook until moisture is absorbed.
  • On either a grill or in a skillet with a little extra-virgin olive oil, cook the poached sausages over medium-high heat 7 to 10 minutes, turning often to ensure even browning.
  • In a large baking dish or pan, place the opened rolls.
  • Fill the rolls with 1 sausage in each roll and evenly distribute the onions and peppers.
  • Mix the 3 shredded cheeses and evenly sprinkle that on top.
  • Place in oven, uncovered, on 400°F or until the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven, top with some Marinara sauce, close the sandwiches and serve.
  • NOTE: See my recipe for Marinara Sauce #84217.
