Sausage and Pepper Sandwiches

I tried a sample of the Trader Joe's version last week, but found it a little salty, so I thought I'd try to duplicate it myself. This was one of those nights where I am trying to use up the produce and leftover sauce from the tortellini the boys had when I was out the other night.

4 sausages (I used Trader Joe's Smoked Apple Chardonay)
1/2 onion
2 bell peppers (I used an orange one and a yellow one)
16 oz. marinara sauce (I used Classico Organic Tomato, Herbs and Spices)
Olive oil
4 sandwich rolls of your choice
Sprinkle of shredded cheese for each sandwich
Thinly slice the onion and bell peppers (taking out the seeds) Drizzle olive oil in the pan and let it heat up slightly. Add onions and let them cook for about 3 minutes, then add the peppers, sausage and pasta sauce. Allow them to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve on sandwich rolls and sprinkle parmesan, provolone or mozarella just before serving.

I also made baked fries to go along with it.

3-4 potatoes peeled and cut into long strips
Seasoning to taste (I usually use Emeril's original seasoning)
Cooking spray

I also often make these with sweet potatoes

Place potatoes on baking sheet and spray with cooking spray
Sprinkle with your seasoning of choice and bake at 400 degrees 20-25 minutes, until they are brown and crispy.

This was an easy dinner, and it seemed to be a hit with my stepson and my husband (although my stepson pulled out as much of the peppers and onions as he could!
