Lisa's StoryThese Sandwiches are just like the ones you get at the San Gennaro Feast..
hot or sweet italian sausage
red bell peppers cut into strips
medium onions cut into strips
salt and pepper to taste
1Although you can broil or pan fry them, authentic feast style sausages are always grilled outside in the open air until well browned.
2Place sliced peppers and onions into a saucepan over medium heat, top with oregano and parsley, sprinkle with salt and black pepper and then drizzle with your olive oil.
3Be sure to stir this mixture every few minutes and continue to cook until the peppers and onions and soft but not mushy. (Approximately 20 minutes)
4Slice your fresh Italian bread in half lengthwise and place 2 sausages into the fold. Top with enough sausage and peppers to fill. Go ahead and make them messy, they're more fun that way!
5Serve and enjoy immediately.

Ahhh ...
