Ingredients

8 links
hot or sweet italian sausage
2
red bell peppers cut into strips
3-4
medium onions cut into strips
2-3 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
oregano
2 Tbsp
parsley
salt and pepper to taste
italian bread

Directions

1
Although you can broil or pan fry them, authentic feast style sausages are always grilled outside in the open air until well browned.
2
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.
3
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)
4
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!
5
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 ...
