About this Recipe

This isn't your typical italian sausage sandwich. The roasted mushrooms gives this a meaty pop with each bite and the addition of basil and balsamic not only worked as an amazing sauce, but it lightened up the vegetables while adding a bit of sweetness.


4 Italian rolls
4 Cooked and sliced hot Italian sausages
8 oz Mushrooms, quartered
4 Assorted Bell peppers cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
1 Onion, sliced
2 Minced garlic cloves
4 tbsp Olive oil, divided
1 tsp Dried oregano
6 Basil leaves, torn
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar


Adjust oven racks to lower middle and upper middle positions, and preheat to 500°F. Add mushrooms to a hot pan and saute until cooked. Add bell peppers, onion, garlic, and oregano to a baking sheet and toss with a tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt.

While the peppers and onions finish cooking, warm remaining two tablespoons in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Set aside.

When peppers and onion are done, carefully remove pan from the oven. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in the cooked mushrooms, fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar. Toss well and season with a pinch of salt, if necessary. Load each with the Italian sausage and generous scoop of the pepper and onion mixture.
