Step 1: Layer in the Veggies
Start with the sliced onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. Then layer on red and green bell peppers.
Step 2: Add the Seasonings and Sauce
Sprinkle veggies with garlic powder, Italian seasonings, and red pepper flakes. Then evenly pour crushed tomatoes over the tops.
Step 3: Layer in the Sausage and the Slow Cook It!
Lastly, layer in the sausages in a single layer. Secure lid on a slow cooker and cook for 6 hours on low. Every hour or so, give the slow cooker a little jiggle to help the sausages sink down into the sauce some.

Split your crusty rolls and place two slices of mozzarella in the fold. Then add a piece of sausage and a portion of peppers and onions. You might want to slice it in half when you serve it.
