A delicious sausage and pepper sandwich with an Italian twist, slow-cooked for several hours to maximize the flavor. Really great to serve up with a simple Caesar Salad.

Cutting Board


Slow Cooker (at least 6qts)


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.

Step 4: Serve It Up!

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.
