Sausage sandwiches with grilled onions, peppers and sauce are a favorite in many parts of the country, so I decided to make a version I would really enjoy with Chicken, feta and spinach sausage which is so delicious and full of flavor. The sauce I added to this sandwich is super easy and has addt'l crunch of sauteed carrots in marsala wine. Carrots are added to several different types of Italian sauces so this one is just kicked up a little with more carrots. Add the onions, cheese and olives and you have one mouth watering husband named it, The Italian Buster. LOL
