Joan's Sausage and Peppers

One of my favorites as a child, if my mom was making this, it usually meant something special was about to happen - a family gathering of some sort, whether it was a party or just a backyard summer picnic.  But why save it just for special occasions?  It's super easy to have any night of the week.  And having dinner together is always special.

6 Sweet Italian Sausage links

2 Yellow Onions, sliced thin

2 Red Bell Peppers, sliced thin

2 Green Bell Peppers, sliced thin

2-3 jars of Marinara Sauce

8 long rolls


Bring a large pot of water to boil.  Place sausage links in water and boil for 30 minutes to render the fat a bit.  Remove from water, cool 5-10 min., then slice into 1/4 inch coins.


In a large pot (I prefer to just wash out the pot I just used for the rest of it, thus cutting down on dishes to wash), pour in the marinara sauce, add in onions, peppers and sliced sausage.  Bring to a boil, then simmer for at least an hour.


You can eat it either in a soup bowl with bread on the side, or as a sandwich on the long roll.  Enjoy!
