Lisa's Story

These Sandwiches are just like the ones you get at the San Gennaro Feast..


8 links
hot or sweet italian sausage
red bell peppers cut into strips
medium onions cut into strips
2-3 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
salt and pepper to taste
italian bread

Directions Step-By-Step

Although you can broil or pan fry them, authentic feast style sausages are always grilled outside in the open air until well browned.
Place 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.
Be 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)
Slice 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!
Serve and enjoy immediately.

    This is great! I make them like this and I also make them with a red sauce like we get in Chicago. We also serve with giardianara.

    Oh, I have wonderful memories of the sausage and peppers at the Feast of San Gennaro back when I lived in NYC. After the sausage and peppers and the red wine with peaches in the plastic cups, it was off to the Torrone vendor to get a big chunk of the sticky stuff -- asking the man to hit it with his hatchet so it would break into small pieces to eat in the subway on the way home. Ahhh ...
